History of Mentoring 

In Homer's Odessey, the Greek warrior Odysseus leaves his wife and his young son, Telemarchus, at home while he journeys to fight in the Trojan War. To ensure that his son is adequately cared for, Odysseus appoints a teacher named Mentor to tutor the boy and act as a guardian and friend while he is way.

Mentoring and Adolescents

4/8/2015

The International Youth Foundation put it this way; " Every young person needs at least one adult who is irrationally committed to their wellbeing. Millions of children grow up virtually alone - disconnected from adults. No love. No supervision. No positive role models. Yet these people must still find their way - they still grow up to become adults. Children can endure the most miserable conditions - even thrive in the midst of them when - if they have at least one loving adult committed to their success. p66 New Directions

The peer group exerts a powerful influence on millions of kids today, but it's only influence by default. It's influence given to it by a culture that has abandoned its young. But when parents are there for their kids - and when young people are surrounded by adults who truly care about them - the peer group is virtually de-fanged… Kids really do want guidance and direction from people who are older and wiser than they are. New Direction p68

What the studies tell us is that teenagers do look first to significant adults in their lives for influence. They look to their parents, then to other family members, then to other adults who are "irrationally committed" to them. p67 New Directions

Adolescents need oases - places where they can go and make mistakes and be imperfect - places where they can test themselves in the presence of safe, caring, and accepting adults and peers. An adolescent who is given the zip-it silencing treatment, learns quickly not to experiment or trust himself Starting Right .308

Mentoring and Adolescents “But suppose that they look at the model and find a person with whom they can truly identify.

Suppose they find a warm, loving, accepting, compassionate heart. Suppose they find high personal standards coupled with a great understanding of human weakness in others. Suppose they find one who has purpose in life, who knows where he is going, and who journeys on his way with a song on his lips and a radiance on his face because God is with him. Will they not say, " That's what I want let me follow you. Teach me how to find the richness of life that you have found.” 4/8/2015
