 The Community Center: Mentoring

Introduction to Mentoring

Mentoring is so cool. It’s great to be a mentor, but it’s also great to have a mentor.

The idea of mentoring comes from Greek mythology. In Homer’s Odyssey, the warrior Odysseus asked his good friend, this guy named Mentor, to teach and guide his son, Telemachus, when Odysseus was away from home. Mentor protects, nurtures, helps, and guides Telemachus in his walk through life.

So, what can we learn from this story? A mentor is usually a relationship between you and someone who has life experience and commitment to you.

Here at The Youthhood – and especially at The Community Center – mentoring is a way of life. If you want to know more about finding a mentor or becoming a mentor, this section will give you some great ideas.
