We understand the benefits of mentoring when we hear the powerful stories of teens whose lives have been changed by a single, caring adult. All teenagers experience troubled times – some more serious than others. Even though they might not show it (or even know it), all they sometimes really need is someone to listen to them and guide them in the right direction.
Although mentoring teenagers isn’t always as hard as it seems but at the same time, not everyone is up for it and it takes serious dedication with the right morals, attitudes and experience.
