youth mentoring

Wikipedia: Youth mentoring is the process of matching mentors with young people who need or want a caring, responsible adult in their lives. The goal of youth mentoring programs is to improve the well-being of the child by providing a role model that can support the child academically, socially and/or personally. This goal can be accomplished through school work, communication, and/or activities. Goals and settings within a mentoring program vary by country because of cultural values.
