An at-risk youth is one who is less likely to transition into adulthood successfully. Success is frequently defined as the ability to avoid crime, achieve academic success, and become financially independent
An at-risk student is a term used in the United States to describe a student who requires temporary or ongoing intervention in order to succeed academically.In the transition between childhood and adulthood, adolescents must navigate many biological, psychological, and social changes. While most are able to do so in ways that involve little danger to themselves and others, more vulnerable youth may experience much greater difficulty and risk.
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.
