“A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could”

Mentoring is a 1-1, non-judgmental relationship in where the mentor provides support and encouragement. It is essentially a supportive process where the mentor brings his or her own experience to the relationship for the benefit of the individual.

Mentoring is useful during a time of transition and can last for a significant and sustained period of time. Working mainly with young people aged between 14 and 24 my role as mentor is to build confidence in the individual’s skills, provide opportunities to develop and assist them in planning for the their future academic and working lives.

Both mentors and young people benefit from the relationship. Research has shown that mentoring boosts young people’s confidence and self-esteem. It also has educational benefits - young people who have a mentor are 52% less likely to play truant from school
