Everyone one of us needs a positive mentor – even adults. A mentor is simply a friend who is older. This person is willing to take the time to build a trusting relationship, hang out, give encouragement, and be a role model to help you grow. Their view of life and successes have come from learning through their many experiences. They are there for you when you need help or have questions.
Youth who join Forge Youth Mentoring have a great time experiencing new activities, sharing their hobbies and interests with their mentor, and get to try things they’ve always hoped to enjoy.
