What is mentoring?

A MENTOR BECOMES ANOTHER CARING ADULT IN THE LIFE OF A CHILD

Mentors have a unique role in the life of a child. Mentors are an additional caring adult supporting the healthy development of your child. Perhaps you recall a teacher, coach, or another person who helped you in some way while you were growing up - that adult was being a mentor. Mentoring programs recruit volunteers of various backgrounds with a wide range of skills and interests who are carefully screened, selected and trained to mentor a child.
