Before becoming a mentor/coach, here are a few things to understand about the role of mentoring.
Most of us have had a teacher, coach or supervisor who has been a mentor to us and made a positive difference in our lives. Those people wore many hats, acting as role models, cheerleaders, policy enforcers, advocates, and friends.
Mentors assume these different roles during the course of a relationship, and share some basic qualities:
1) A sincere desire to be involved with a young person
2) Respect for young people
3) Active listening skills
5) Ability to see solutions and opportunities
