Binghamton youth advocates are looking to the community to help improve the lives of children.
Binghamton youth advocates are looking to the community to help improve the lives of children.

The Binghamton school district and the city's youth bureau are spearheading an effort to promote mentoring for kids of all ages. This can come in the form of academic support, peer mentoring, one-on-one time, internships and even help for struggling families.

Mark Ward is the district's Middle Years Programme Coordinator and liaison to the group. He's set an ambitious goal of finding a mentor for every student in the district.

"What we can do for kids with career development will only enhance the people that are being hired by our local businesses. What we can do for them as people, socially, will only help what's going on on our streets," said Ward.
