Thanks for signing up to be a mentor for our Boys in Education Week. We will contact you within 24 hours with further details.

As a mentor, you are a valuable resource to your mentees. As a guide and counselor, you inspire and facilitate academic, career, and personal achievements. The developmental transitions faced by young people in each of these areas are enriched by your experience, wisdom, and guidance.

As a mentor you offer the following:


Mentors share their knowledge, experiences, and wisdom.


Mentors stimulate curiosity and build confidence by presenting new ideas, opportunities, and challenges.


Mentors encourage growth and achievement by providing an open and supportive environment.


Mentors help mentees discover talents and interests and define and attain their goals.


Mentors guide mentees in reaching academic, career, and personal goals.


By sharing stories of achievement with mentees, mentors can become role models.
