Hi I'm Laura from youngwritersworkshops.com and I'm going to talk about what is mentoring? A mentor is someone who provides guidance and someone who has more experience possibly is older and definitely has some skills and some experience that the younger person or the child or student that they are mentoring is in need of. Now a mentor sometimes can provide social support, emotional support, and academic support so there is a range of things that a mentor might be able to provide. Usually the relationship of a mentor and a mentoree is a long lasting one so someone who is going to become a mentor will work with this person over the long term and stay involved in their life and help them achieve some goals and possibly provide emotional support in the time of need. Mentoring can be really rewarding for a person. Often times a professional can really get a lot of accomplishment and sense of satisfaction from taking someone under their wing and helping them grow professionally or personally so that is a little bit about what is mentoring.
