YOUTH MENTORSHIP 101

HOW MENTORSHIP WORKS

DAY 5-6

AWARENESS

As you have learned mentorship can be formal or informal. The type of mentorship depends on what works best for both parties involved. Most formal mentorships are through a structured program and have a set time frame of when it will begin and end. There will be a set time and day the mentor will meet with the mentee and there will be certain objectives that are followed for each meeting. The meeting could take place in a school, recreation center or virtually. Many informal mentorships are quite the opposite, they are oftentimes open-ended relationships and do not have as much structure as a formal mentorship.
