  • Mentoring is something that can change the world if it is applied. It will help people to cope with different things and it will help with social skills making problem solving easier for everyone. In doing that it will make everyone more susceptible to talking their problems and issues out with other people.
  • Support, guidance and assistance is offered by the mentor. They will help the child through difficult times, face new challenges, and work to correct any past problems. When parents are unavailable or unable to provide responsible guidance, mentors can play a important role.Mentoring is important because it improves our community, state, and nation because these young children are learning to better themselves which allows them to grow up becoming good citizens and employees who strengthens our businesses, community, and our society.
  • A mentor is an individual committed to helping a student, identified as an at-risk, get his/her life back together again, whether it be academically, socially mentally, or physically you can always count on a mentor. He/she commits his/her self to spending the time and energy necessary to put the student on the right track. The mentor takes on a lot of different roles at once. A mentor is a big brother/sister, role model, and most of all a friend to the student.
  • There are 4 different types of mentoring and they all pretty much have the save results and outcomes. One on One, Group, Peer, and e-mentoring all have their perks and good qualities but they also may have things that may be left out like maybe with one on one mentoring it’s not as effective as peer mentoring.
  • One-to-one mentoring is a developmental and learning technique aimed at increasing personal capacity, skills and learning. The mentor and the protégé together comes up with goals and plans to pursue the set goals. Along the way they will encounter problems and issues and the mentor will teach the protégé ways to deal with those problems in an orderly fashion. Also if the protégé needs someone to talk to about any issues that the protégé may encounter they have their mentor to count on.
  • Mentoring is considered group mentoring when you have at least one adult and at least four children, for the most part group mentoring programs usually consist several adults working with small groups of children. The ratio of adult to children is not greater than 1:4. Group mentoring is slightly less personalized because you have other people there with you but the effects can be just as strong. In this situation you participate in team building activities and trust activities and you form your own support group which could be very very good for the protégés.
  • Peer mentoring is whenan older child befriends a younger child. This is a very good mentoring technique. Child to child relationship is more natural than an adult to child so it would be very easy for them to open up to one another and to understand one another's feelings and ideas. This is why the statistics is slight different from one to one mentoring and group mentoring.
  • Studies show that in peer programs mentors/mentees improve academically as a result of their involvement in the program. Not only did they develop academically but they also developed in character and they learned better ways of communication. The students learned to make better decisions and solve problems and in learning that they learned to resolve conflict in a mature way.
  • E-mentoring is mentoring via internet or email. This type of mentoring is for those who really don’t have much time to have a one on one relationship with a person. This type of mentoring is 20 minutes a week and is use mostly by college students.
  • Through my research I have found that the protégés of mentoring programs are 46% less prone to drugs, 27% less prone to alcohol, and 52% less prone to skipping school.
  • As a part of the Big Brother Big Sister of America the Big Brother Big sister Program of Delaware’s school based mentoring program was studied nationally. The study showed that school mentors have a positive effect on children in the areas listed. 64% becomes more positive; 38% gets high grades in history, languages, and math; 60% improved relationships with adults; and 56% improved relationships with peers.
  • Others studies show that 55% express feelings better, 64% develop 64% higher self-confidence, 62% more likely trust teachers, 59% get better grades, and 73% raise their goals.
  • Here are a few things that may tie into mentoring. Paying it forward/altruism because you have to have an altruistic attitude which means doing something out of the kindness of your heart which also ties into community service because community service is a deed that you commit yourself to doing for nothing, just because you wanted to help someone/something or maybe a group of people. The UM Challenge is something that ties into this because it is a program that can be a representative of group mentoring. The UM Challenge is building a support group and that is what group mentoring is all about.
  • Paying it forward is the idea that you will help someone and expect nothing in return except for them to help someone else. It is doing something out of the kindness of your heart and not because you are getting something out of it. Pay it Forward is actually a movie and a book and I have the movie trailer here for you to see.
  • Mentoring is paying it forward because mentors are not asking for a pay check or asking for any kinds of rewards. Mentors only look out for the good of their mentee. They Expect to help and change the life or lives of the Little brother or sister.
  • Community Service is something that people do because they want to, because they want to pay it forward to their community as a whole. They volunteer their time and effects to do something that will benefit the community.
  • Community service connects with mentoring because it is voluntary. People volunteering their time and effect to pay it forward. So all three of theses things or ideas are connected in some way.
  • Basically anyone can become a mentor. People who want to have fun and want to change a life definitely has a place in mentoring programs. If your not open to people and would still like to be a mentor there is mentor training in which you will be taught the characteristics of a mentor.
  • In mentoring training you will be taught all the characteristics needed to be a sufficient mentor. You will be taught things like how to control you emotions and how to give and understand feedback. You will build your own confidence as a mentor and you will be taught how to help your protégé choose what to do next. In this class you will be taught how to be a leader.
  • The young people of today must cope with far more personal and social pressures than any other previous generation of youth. Early intervention through a structured mentor relationship may be able to give young people the tools and support they need to deal effectively with these pressures. Understanding the many social, psychological, and physical demands that the youth face is extremely important for any individual about to undertake the task of being a mentor. Following is a list of these issues.
  • Mentors are not Parent, Professional Counselors, nor are they Social Workers but some of their traits will be a part of the mentor’s role. Listening, Nurturing, Supporting, Advising. Through the mentors’ sustained caring, interest, and acceptance, youth may begin to think of themselves as worthy of this attention. They may apply this new, stronger sense of self-confidence to other relationships and experiences.
  • The Mentoring Center was founded in 1991 and is located in Northern California. It is an organization that is dedicated to helping Bay Area mentoring programs better themselves. It provides mentor training for mentors of other organizations. Mentor Center worked with 25,000 youth and volunteer mentors and served more than 800 different mentoring programs in the Bay Area. For those who do not know The Bay Area is located in California. It surrounds the San Francisco and San Pablo estuaries.
