A mentor can change a young person's life for the better.
Wednesday in Omaha, dozens of organizations came together to talk about how they could make the impact go even further.
It was the Fifth Annual Midlands Mentoring Partnership Summit at the CenturyLink Center.
Those organizations held workshops and listened to speakers.
They wanted to learn how they could best work together, save money, and utilize the resources they have in order to reach more kids.
"We really try to help to get kids that don't have that, give them more adult support so they they can make better choices in their own life, and the research shows that having a mentor can make a huge difference in a young person's life," says Deborah Neary, of Midlands Mentoring Partnership.
A guest speaker at the event was Paul Tough, who wrote a best selling book on how kids reach success.
