Be a mentor
National studies have found that mentoring makes a real difference for young people.
Ford Foundation study showed that students who had a mentor were more likely
to graduate from high school, enroll in college,
and become involved in community service.
Center for Intergenerational Learning
(Temple University) study showed that students in a mentoring program
will have better school attendance and improved relationships with adults and peers, and were less inclined to use drugs.
Mentoring is a powerful personal development and empowerment tool. It is an effective way of helping people to progress in their careers and is becoming increasing popular as its potential is realized. It is a partnership between two people (mentor and mentee). It is a helpful relationship based upon mutual trust and respect.
