Today on Your Call: What is the value of youth mentoring programs?

On today's Your Call we’ll rebroadcast a conversation we had about youth mentorship programs.  Mentors can offer anything from academic encouragement to help dealing with life’s challenges.  And these relationships have the powerful ability to help people cross social boundaries. If you’ve been a mentor or a mentee, how did it change you?  What mentoring programs would you recommend to others?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.
