Why Mentoring?

Mentoring is a special partnership between two people based on commitment to the mentoring process, common goals & expectations, focus, mutual trust and respect.

It allows young people to learn valuable knowledge from those who have experience & advantage of maturity.

The consistent, enduring presence of a caring adult in a young person’s life can be the difference between staying in school or dropping out, making healthy decisions or engaging in risking behaviours & realising one’s dreams.
