Do You Need a Mentor?

 

Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. Quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity. Yet one in three young people will grow up without this critical asset.

What is mentoring?

 

Mentoring refers to a personal developmental relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. It is a process for sharing knowledge relevant to work, career, or professional development. The intent is to develop another’s capabilities through a one-on-one relationship that is outside a formal organizational structure. It can be face-to-face or via technology, and held over a sustained period of time.  Mentors come either from within one’s own organization or externally, even outside one’s sector.  They provide insight, guidance, and often pointed advice and direction, based on their own experience and expertise.  Effective mentoring requires agreed upon goals, scheduled meetings, and evaluation of outcomes.
