About Melanin Mentors

 Through mentorship we connect these mothers to resources such as parental education, mental health and counseling services, professional development, financial education and life skills. 

Through their individual mentoring relationships and connections our young women become confident in their futures and more confident in what they can offer their children.

Why Mentor? 

 Mentoring is a  time-proven strategy that can help young people of all circumstances achieve their potential. Mentors are caring individuals who, along with parents or guardians, provide young people with support, counsel, friendship, reinforcement and a constructive example.  Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity. Yet one in three young people will grow up without this critical asset.
