What is a Mentor?
A mentor is a person who a young person can establish a trusting relationship through the facilitation of activities that are relevant to the mentee’s interests, strengths and talents.
First and foremost, Life Skill’s Hub encourages young people to be their true, authentic selves, and our mentors do just that by fostering mutually cooperative and supportive relationships built on a foundation of trust. Mentors engage in activities of shared interests to promote fun, as well as exposing them to new ideas.
Mentors help young people to set goals and work towards them by offering guidance, support and encouragement through meaningful conversations. They dedicate time and attention to support the development of life skills, confidence, resilience, and empower them to make positive life choices.
Our large group room provides an environment where clients and their mentors can participate in activities in a shared space. This provides a natural environment to facilitate increased social engagement and provide positive experiences with others in the community.
