The Young People (“Mentees”)
It is a chance for them to grow and explore new opportunities. With adult guidance, they are more likely to make positive choices and relate better to others. Other benefits include: a better attitude about school, higher college enrollment rates and higher educational aspirations, enhanced self-esteem and self-confidence, improved behavior at home and at school and improved interpersonal skills, to name a few.
The Volunteers (“Mentors”)
Mentoring is a two-way street. Young people can teach adults valuable lessons too! Mentoring makes you take a step back from your life and gain perspective, and the lessons you teach are valuable reminders to you as well. Other benefits to mentors include a sense of accomplishment, creation of networks of volunteers, insight into childhood and adolescence, increased patience, and improved supervisory skills.
Young people with mentors can relate better to others, are less likely to strike out in anger, and can learn interpersonal skills, helping with family communication and dynamics.
Building positive relationships with young people is an investment. It helps them stay on course and become responsible, productive adults.
Mentors need time for consistent contact, patience, communication skills and respect for boundaries.
They seek to enrich.
They explain and instruct.
They share an interest or passion with a young person.
