Challenge

Y-KNOT Inc. is a non-profit volunteer-driven support group providing mentoring programs for middle and high school youth in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Y-KNOT Inc. will form partnerships with local schools, the juvenile court system, faith-based organizations, and other community organizations to develop youth in our community.

Solution

For our programs, youth are paired with a committed adult volunteer who is trained to stimulate knowledge, nurture ideas, build trust, and promote achievement of goals, by engaging youth in one-on-one activities. Mentors and youth agree to meet for a specified length of time based on the level of need and program. Mentors will receive continuous training throughout the year and will participate in meetings to report on the young person's progress and lessons learned.

Long-Term Impact

Y-KNOT Inc. will primarily target at-risk youth who have developed destructive behaviors and lack motivation due to peer pressure, social issues, and lack of support. To restore hope and confidence, young people must be in a caring, nurturing environment that promotes their best effort and reinforces personal respect and accountability to facilitate their transition to adulthood.
