Today , Senator John Kerry and I introduced the Mentoring America 's Children Act of 2007 . This legislation builds upon the Mentoring Program in No Child Left Behind (NCLB) by providing training and technical assistance to grantees, strengthening research on the effects of mentoring, and improving the sustainability of grant recipients.



The Mentoring America's Children Act is based on joint recommendations developed by MENTOR/National Mentoring Partnership, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and the National Collaboration for Youth. This legislation broadens the reach of mentoring to include a number of specific populations of young people who could particularly benefit from a mentor's involvement, including children in foster care and kids in communities with a high rate of youth suicides. The bill also allows students to gain professional skills while working with mentors by establishing internship programs during the school year.



Mentors serve as role models, advisors, and advocates for the children they help guide, but too many children don't have access to mentorship programs. We must wo rk together to close America 's "Mentoring Gap" and match even more high-quality mentors with our at-risk students to improve their chances of achieving a successful adulthood.



Sincerely,

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton
