Mentoring programs match a young person (mentee) with a more experienced person who is working in a non-professional capacity (mentor) to help provide support and guidance to the mentee in one or more areas of the mentee’s development. There are 4 types of Mentoring programs: Community, Juvenile Justice, School, and Youth Initiated.
Youth Initiated Mentors are mentors that are identified by the youth as someone who is already a support or mentor for the youth. The program then helps to make sure the match is safe and supportive for the youth and to help develop natural mentors for more sustainable matches. The goal of this mentoring relationship is to help youth identify and sustain a healthy support system.
