Transformation starts with

Just One Life.

Just One Life

You may be wondering how your one life could possibly make a difference in the world. At Urban Hope, we believe you can do amazing things with Just One Life. While you may not be able to reach the entire world, you have an amazing opportunity to impact Just One Life right here in your community. You can significantly change the life of an at-risk child by showing them things you have already learned, a road you have already traveled.
Studies show that mentoring a child (two contacts per month) changes everything in that child’s life. They are more likely to graduate. They are more likely to avoid drugs. And they’re more likely to become involved in life building activities. When you create a difference in a child’s life, you not only impact their life, you impact everyone influenced by them throughout their entire life. Begin transforming the world today by believing in Just One Life.

When a child has a mentor they are ...

78% more likely to volunteer.

55% more likely to enroll in college.

52% less likely to skip school.

46% less likely to use illegal drugs.

30% more likely to participate in extracurricular activities.

The power of mentorship is matchless.
