Mentoring Tips

  • Be patient:  Building trust takes time; a young person may not show it at first but your help may be just what he or she needs.
  • Try to understand a child’s viewpoint: Even if you don’t share his/her point of view, trying to appreciate it shows that you care.
  • Be there: Just the sound of your concerned voice can make a big difference in the life of a child.
  • Be honest: Kids know adults aren’t perfect.  If you make a mistake, then admit it and apologize to the student. Humility is a skill that a child may only learn from you.
