• Washington State Mentors has a new name - Mentoring Works Washington. The new name and brand identity emphasize our growing role as the principal advocate for youth mentoring throughout Washington. Mentoring Works Washington currently serves 34,000 K-12 children through 180 community-mentoring organizations. Over the past 10 years, our efforts have benefited youth, as well as Washington communities, by establishing best practices that lead to improved academic performance and emotional well-being among young people, and by heightening their awareness of the importance of good citizenry, as well as the harmful impact of drugs and alcohol.
