About Mentoring USA:

Mentoring USA, founded by Matilda Raffa Cuomo in 1995, is an effective, early-intervention mentoring program to prevent school dropout. By providing mentors at schools, community centers, and foster care agencies, Mentoring USA helps children, ages 5-18, improve their self-esteem, broaden their vision of opportunities and succeed in school. The model has proven to be effective in helping a child to reach his or her full potential. When each child is matched with a trained, caring, adult volunteer mentor on a one-to-one basis, the child's grades improve, school absenteeism minimizes, and children gain new confidence and hope for the future.
