What is a Next Level Youth mentor?
Dependability, patience, flexibility and most of all a relentless commitment to a young person’s success.
NLY mentors come from all walks of life. They are single, married, in early careers or retired. They are of all ethnic groups, beliefs and lifestyles.
In short, they are like our children, diverse, inquisitive, and open to new experiences and all possibilities, with a willingness to grow and change.
Together mentor and young person set goals for the year and support each other in reaching the goals they set. Being a mentor is a tough but rewarding position.
What Mentoring means to us
Being a Friend, a wise Advisor and also a relentless Coach.
As a mentor, you listen to the child good and bad thing and help them to see how their behavior will helping them or not helping them reach their goal. Reinforce how your commitment to young persons can and will help them. As using our own life experiences as examples as fitting.
It’s important to be honest and open to gain trust and acceptance to get them to be open to their own possibilities.
To consistently encourage and remind your child of his or her positive attributes. That he or she could be whatever they wish to be in life with hard work.
To assist your child to access resources that might otherwise be unavailable to him or her.
In this program we would like to see:
That each mentor will have no more than 2 children and if they can not handle they will please let us know. We will help you set up different type of program for the children.
The programs process is open to suggestions.
