What is Mentoring?
A matter of trust. Mentoring is a structured and trusting relationship that brings young people together with caring individuals who offer guidance, support and encouragement aimed at developing the young person’s competence and character. A mentor is an adult who, along with a young person’s parents or guardians, provides support, counsel, friendship, reinforcement and constructive examples of how to make choices that serve him or her. Mentors are good listeners, people who care, people who want to help young people bring out strengths that are already there.
