Become A Mentor

Become A Mentor

Mentoring is a relationship that brings young people together with caring adults, of all ages, to offer guidance, support and encouragement.

Researchers have found that not only does mentoring improve self-esteem but can help a child:

  • Improve his/ her attitude towards their parents, peers and teachers.
  • Become less likely to initiate illegal drug use.
  • Stay motivated and focused on their education.
  • Become less likely to skip school.
  • Find positive ways to spend free time.
  • Be less likely to begin using alcohol.
  • Face daily challenges and gain proper decision making skills.
  • Be less likely to hit someone or fight at school.
