"Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges and makes them feel like they matter. Research confirms that mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic and professionally situations. Mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, as well as social and economic opportunities." ~ National Mentoring ParternshipThere are few relationships in life that are more influential than those between a mentor and a young person. I know this from both sides of the coin. I've had many mentors in my life growing up. A person who took a unique interest in me, fostered my growth and guided me onward.
I've also been a mentor to many. The experience has been so rewarding and meaningful to me. In fact, research shows that mentoring is an extraordinary experience for all involved.
Change a life.
And transform your own.
