Interested in Becoming a Mentor?
A mentor is simply a caring, adult friend who devotes time to a young person. Although mentors can serve in a number of ways, all mentors have a purpose of helping young people to discover their strengths and reach their potential.
It is important to note that a mentor does not take the place of a parent, teacher, and/or counselor in the young person’s life.
Successful mentors understand their roles and limitations in building positive relationships with young people.
