“A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you.”
Bob Proctor

A Mentoring Success

Mentors help build a better, more stable society. You have the potential to change a young person's life. Do you realize how amazing that can be? Actually the life you end up changing could be your own.


Mentor Qualifications are the foundation of a successful mentor:

  • Willing spirit
  • Openness to cultural differences
  • Good listening skills
  • Patience
  • Sense of humor
  • Commitment

Basic mentor duties and responsibilities:

  • Meet with the assigned mentee for the agreed-upon time frame (i.e. often weekly meetings for at least one year)
  • Act as a resource and guide
  • Work closely with one of the partner's agencies' staff through phone
  • Serve as an example and a positive role model
  • Accept and relate to youth who may not share the volunteer’s lifestyle and values
  • Respect the mentee’s right to self-determination and independence

Matching mentors and mentees is a carefully managed process. Matches are made on the basis of interests, skills, background, knowledge and temperament of both the young person and the mentor.

Involvement in mentoring strengthens our communities. Mentoring, when done correctly, makes a huge difference in the lives of young people that we reach.
