How does it work?
Teens will have two roles in the Youth Mentoring Program; being a mentee and a mentor. Being a mentee means that you will be partnered with an adult mentor to support your learning in various topics and how to be a good mentor to others. You’ll get to practice those skills by providing mentoring to the younger children you are paired with through monthly activities and team building exercises. Teens can choose which mentoring track they are interested in: Forestry/Forest Youth Success, Health & Nutrition, Leadership & Civic Engagement. All teens will receive training, and support with developing important life skills.
