Provide Support: Helping Youth Feel Valued
Let's Do This!
We all appreciate a little support when we are having a difficult time with something. Research actually shows that when youth feel supported in Everyday Mentoring relationships with adults, outcomes are more likely to be positive.
The Search Institute points to providing support as one of the key ways to develop strong relationships with youth. Check out some ways they have suggested to support youth:
• Encourage—Praise my efforts and achievements.
• Guide—Provide practical assistance and feedback to help me learn.
• Model—Be an example I can learn from and admire.
• Advocate—Stand up for me when I need it.
