YOUTH MENTORSHIP 101
HOW MENTORSHIP WORKS
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.
