Mentoring: It Changes Both Your Lives!
BECOME A MENTOR
Few bonds in life are more influential than those between a young person and an adult. At its most basic level, mentoring helps because it guarantees a young person that there is someone who cares about them. A child is not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges. But, mentoring doesn’t just affect the young person. Mentoring is a shared opportunity for learning and growth. Many mentors say that the rewards they gain are as substantial as those for their mentees.
