Mentor


Responsibilities and Roles
The primary role of a youth mentor is to develop a personal and positive rapport with a
child, and this involves consistent meetings with the child and ensuring the meeting
times are enjoyable and comfortable. Additionally, mentors should work with the youths
to establish goals. Examples of goals could be making good grades or attending
college. Mentors should assist children in creating life action plans, such as a goal
timeline. Another responsibility for mentors is that they act as a cheerleader, coach and
advocate for children, and mentors should even provide children with resources in the
community.
Qualifications
Mentors must enjoy working with children and must also have a passion for advocating
the success of youth. Qualified mentors are responsible, committed, and they also are
good listeners. Experience working with children and mentors must pass a criminal
background investigation. Also, mentors need to have flexibility in their time to be able
to meet with children on a weekly and consistent basis.
