NJ Rev Stat § 34:15F-1 (2013) What's This?

34:15F-1 Findings, declarations relative to mentoring programs.

1.The Legislature finds and declares that there are a significant number of students in New Jersey who are economically and socially disadvantaged and who are alienated from the community and school. These students are at-risk of substance abuse, teen pregnancy or other behavioral problems that inhibit academic achievement and successful integration into society.

The Legislature further finds that mentoring programs that develop relationships between professionally trained and committed adult volunteers and at-risk students, for the purpose of providing support, counseling, reinforcement and constructive examples, create an environment in which students can achieve their full academic potential and which fosters their future success as productive citizens of the State.
