Mentor Guidelines


Mentoring for Success provides students with highly qualified and effective mentors who engage students in asset building activities to build skills for school success, attendance, and problem solving.

Mentors serve as positive role models and motivate students to become their best. They offer students a pathway to expand their life perspectives, overcome obstacles and build on their strengths to make positive choices and develop essential school and life skills. Mentors are not case managers or therapists. They are caring adults committed and skilled at building relationships with young people.

Responsibilities and Commitments

“The most effective mentors offer support, challenge, patience, and enthusiasm while they guide others to new levels of achievement.”
