WHAT IS A MENTOR?

Mentors are ordinary people who have chosen to share their life lessons with someone who could do with a little help. They are game changers that you can always trust and rely on when the chips are down and you need someone in your corner.

Do you remember how tough it was growing up? How easy it was to be influenced by the wrong people? Almost everyone can do with a helping hand. But in particular, it is very important to find mentees under the age of 18. This is a critical time in life where people can easily make the wrong decisions. The habits formed at this age can be long-lasting. Help your mentees to form good habits.

Chances are, if you know someone who is under the age of 18, they could do with some help. It could be a relative, a friend or just someone from your community. If you don't, then ask friends and family members if they know someone that needs help.

In short, you could literally save a life. You have the power to make a difference. People take their peers' perspectives very seriously. So gain a friend and a mentee. Form relationships with your mentees so that they feel comfortable sharing concerns and problems with you. Then you can then help them with access to appropriate support and resources during times of struggle.

It is up to you to be the mentor you wish you had. To help your mentees make the right decisions. Help them set goals, achieve what they set out to do and ultimately realise their full potential.

It's important to remember that the purpose of mentoring is to build a relationship. Your primary mission is to become someone they can look up to. Someone they can trust and rely on.
