Information for Young People/Potential Mentees
What is a Mentor?
Mentors are unpaid adult volunteers who want to give up their time to meet with you.
A Mentor is simply someone who:
- You can talk to & trust;
- Who will listen to you;
- Who will give you some time each week;
- Who is independent of school and your parents/guardians
Within certain limits, (which they will tell you about) they’ll keep what is said between you confidential. A Mentor may not know all the answers, but they will listen to you!
What will I do with my Mentor?
What you and your mentor do is largely up to you.You may:
- Sit and chat;
- Go for a walk;
- have something to eat;
- Play some sport or game
….or do something else … whatever you and your Mentor decide!
