Youth Mentoring Programs

Have You Considered Youth Mentoring Programs?

If you are looking at ways to help your child through a difficult time, boost his or her self esteem and perhaps keep him or her from falling in with a bad crowd, there are many options. However, one you may not have considered are youth mentoring programs. Youth mentoring programs are where the young person is paired with a mentor--someone whom he or she can look up to and learn from.

 

These programs are all set up differently, but the idea is that the youth spends time with his or her mentor, perhaps learning a new hobby or even a trade. This gives the young person someone to look up to and learn from who isn’t a parent or teacher. In the best situations, this mentor is able to help the teen with many aspects of life. Plus, this connection can lead to a lifetime of friendship--what could be better than that?
