Mentoring is an intentional relationship between a caring adult and a young person needing additional support and encouragement. Mentors encourage mentees to leadership by supporting their SPARKS, promoting academic success, making good choices, and completing a high school education with a plan for the future. Mentors meet for one hour per week with their mentee.
Mentoring can help young people feel valued and face daily challenges through meaningful conversations and fun shared activities. Mentors can help young people celebrate their accomplishments, and set high expectations for personal growth and success.
