The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation found that teens with mentors/coaches:

-Have better school attendance; a better chance of going on to higher education; and better attitudes toward school.

-Have fewer negative youth behaviors.

-Have positive social attitudes and relationships.

-Trust their parents more and communicate better with them.

The Federal Mentoring Council reports youth with mentors/coaches have:

-Increased high school graduation rates

-Lower high school dropout rates

-Healthier relationships and lifestyle choices

-Better attitude about school

-Higher college enrollment rates and higher educational aspirations

-Enhanced self-esteem and self-confidence

-Improved behavior, both at home and at school

-Stronger relationships with parents, teachers, and peers

The Big Brothers/Big Sisters conducted a five-year study on the benefits of mentoring/coaching. They found:

-Children with mentors were more confident and had fewer behavioral problems.

-Girls in the study were four times less likely to become bullies than those without a mentor and boys were two times less likely.

-Mentored youth had an increased belief in their abilities to succeed in school and felt less anxiety related to peer pressure.

-Nonparent mentors were highly instrumental in how these teens learned to believe in themselves and tackle challenging goals

Other benefits include:

-A life coach will provide you and your daughter with honest insights

-A life coach will support and encourage effective communication, which will deepen the bond you share.

-A life coach is another trustworthy, respectable role-model who your daughter can turn to for guidance and support
