Mentor's VisionOur Vision is a world where children and young people are empowered to make healthy decisions and avoid drug use.
Mentor's MissionTo prevent drug use and substance abuse through the promotion of health and well-being in children and young people.
As the leading international NGO voice of drug prevention, we work with our partners to reach out to children and young people.
We apply and share our knowledge internationally so that the benefits of effective drug prevention policy and practice become visible worldwide.
Through our national organizations and network of partners we undertake and deliver effective prevention programs.
- Care & Prevent
We believe that there is a fundamental need to invest in preventing
drug use and making substance abuse less likely. Prevention begins
with the healthy development of the child in a nurturing family
and supportive community that offers both protection from risk and
opportunities for young people to achieve their fullest potential.
- Inspire & Encourage
We believe that young people are able to make sensible, healthy
decisions and can take responsibility for their actions. We support
activities that encourage collaboration with community members and
involve young people in planning, delivering and/or evaluating these
- Strengthen & Empower
We believe in providing young people with knowledge and
opportunities that will support and enable them to make informed
decisions and to avoid drug abuse.
- Partnerships & Collaboration
We believe that through actions and collaboration at various levels:
global, national, community and individual we can reach our vision.
