How Can a Mentor Help?
A mentor is a caring, consistent and committed friend. Some children find natural mentors and experience informal mentoring in their life through relationships with family members, friends of the family, neighbors, friend’s parents, an older sibling, a sport or hobby, etc.
For a variety of reasons including environment, circumstance, available resources or simply a more introverted character, many youth do not find these types of enriching and guiding relationships on their own.
MENTOR New York is committed to creating and supporting effective mentoring programs so that every young person has the opportunity to experience a positive mentoring relationship.
