LEO Hearted Mentorship Services “If you cannot see where you are going, ask someone who has been there before.” -J. Loren Norris

LEO Hearted Mentorship Services is an initiative of LEO Hearted Cares Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. LEO Hearted Cares' mission is to increase public safety and strengthen ties between law enforcement and the communities they serve.

Why Mentoring?

The National Mentoring Partnership found that young adults who were at-risk for falling off track but had a mentor are:

• 55% more likely to enroll in college
• 78% more likely to volunteer regularly
• 90% are interested in becoming a mentor
• 130% more likely to hold leadership positions.

What is LEO Hearted Mentorship Services?

LEO Hearted Mentorship Services provides a platform where law enforcement officials and community members can serve as permanent placeholders in the lives of youth who are connected to the criminal justice system. The mentorship goal is to support youth in becoming cultivated, emerging adults.
