Being a mentor to a child or youth can be one of the most rewarding roles you will play.
We encourage you to think about why you want to be a mentor, and to look in to organizations that support your efforts to be an effective, responsive mentor.
Typically, the steps are as follows:
- Organizations will ask you to attend a volunteer orientation. This is an opportunity for you to learn more about the organization.
- Complete a volunteer application form.
- Participate in a personal interview.
- Join other volunteers in a training workshop. Here you will learn even more about the opportunity that awaits you and things to keep in mind as a mentor.
