Become a Mentor.
A mentor acts as a role model and friend; they encourage positive choices, promote high self-esteem, and support academic achievement. Mentors visit their assigned “mentee” at school, ideally once each week during the school year, for a meal, game, academic help, school program, and conversation. Be someone that listens, offers friendship, guidance, and encouragement to a young person. You’ll be amazed by how much you’ll get out of the experience.
