Purpose - This relationship for the mentor and men-tee is a high priority for both. The mentor must consider being a mentor as one of their main purposes in life.  The mentor and men-tee must be clear on why their together and the reason their meeting.  They will discuss and agree upon what will be worked on, and will be able to recognize when the purpose has been completed.

  4. Training for apprenticeship  will meet for 16 weeks 4 times a week.

What is mentoring 

It can be a coverall for coaching, consulting, advising, and teaching, all these are used at different points of the mentoring process to meet different objectives.

It is a mutually beneficial relationship between two people, mentoring is a development process, it is a brain to be picked, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.

The mentor guides the men-tee for a certain duration of time.  The uniqueness of the mentoring comes along with its grand source of intrinsic  motivation, support, and understanding, it has a more personalized relationship between the mentor and men-tee

That is not usual for other forms of learning.  The process is usually a minimum of six months, and normally ends after a year, unless the mentor and men-tee agree on a longer period.  Mentoring allows the building of relationships based on trust, through a holistic approach, that differs from traditional career and personal guidance.

It allows individuals the opportunity to share their experiences, knowledge and skills in order for the person to develop personally and professionally.


Is one of the best methods to enhance individual learning and development in all walks of life.

Mentor and Men-tee Relationship 

 Be able to take risks of trusting each other., except each other.

Agree upon working toward specific goals

Deal effectively with unmet expectations or objectives.

Build trust and relationship 

Work together so the men-tee obtains educational, career, and personal goals.

Practice empathy and explore  both their challenges and strengths.

Benefits of being Mentored

Young people with mentors report setting higher educational goals and are more likely to attend college than those without mentors.

Young people who have mentors, particularly at risk youth, are more likely to report engaging in productive and beneficial activities, and volunteer projects, than youth without a mentor these activities increase young adults self-confidence and self esteem.

Youth with a mentor are more likely to hold a leadership position in a club, sports team, school council, or another group.

In both structured and informal mentoring relationships the longer the mentoring relationships last the greater the value for youth and the stronger the outcomes.

At risk youth are less likely to have mentors and more likely to want one.  Most understand the value of mentoring and report wanting one.

What is a mentor 

someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.

A guide to help the men-tee  navigate their personal and professional journey. A trusted and respected ad-visor.  Someone that explores with the men-tee their current personal and career situation, what they wish to achieve, and how they can go about reaching their goals., without prescribing solutions or career routes.

Their qualities are honest, trustworthy,supportive, a listener, approachable, open, have self awareness, organizational know how, credibility, accessibility, communication skills, ability to empower, inventiveness, empathy,and understanding.  Mentors play a critical role  in the lives of their men-tees.  Mentors play a supporting role in helping direct the men-tee with making decisions in their career and personal choices.  The mentor also help them transition into adulthood or career changes. The mentor helps when life is overwhelming, confusing, and a stressful process.  Having a mentor is beneficial to both the men-tee and their families.  The mentor receive satisfaction from seeing others develop The mentor is challenged and stimulated,  having identified future potential of the person they are mentoring, learning and developing their self from  the process.
