How is AIM Impacting Youth?

AIM tracks the impact mentoring is having on mentees a few different ways. One way is through surveys done with mentees before being matched with a mentor and at the end of each school year. Another is by receiving testing and attendance data from the Waverly-Shell Rock School District for students matched in the program (with parent permission). Below are just some of the impacts we saw this school year:

  • 100% of our mentees responded, "pretty true" or "very true" to the statement "my mentor really cares about me".

  • 92.6% of our mentees responded, "pretty true" or "very true" to the statement "my mentor makes me feel special".

  • 66.7% of our mentees responded, "pretty true" or "very true" to the statement "my mentor has helped me with problems in my life".
