Knoxville Leadership Foundation – Mentoring Amachi
According to the Tennessee Department of Correction, it is estimated there are over 4,400 children in Knox County with one or both parents in prison. Children with mentors do better in school, get along better with their families, and are less likely to abuse drugs or alcohol than their peers. Having a mentor is great for any child, but for a child whose parents are locked up, it's a lifeline. A mentor shows the child by example that there is a better way. Mentors teach these children life skills that can literally save their lives.
