Mentoring for Youth

A small encounter can create ripples of change. Youth mentors guide at-risk youths toward a life of hope and empower them to impact others.


Course Description

Mentoring youths can be a direct, yet complex and dynamic process. Having helping skills is not enough. To be effective mentors, it is important to understand youths’ worldviews and appreciate the functions of youths’ behaviours within their life experiences.

Uncover why youths engage in such behaviours and learn how to select appropriate mentoring approaches based on their needs. Be equipped to engage youths and inspire them towards greater heights in life.
