Your Role as a Mentor:
is relatively flexible. You spend an hour a week together, doing things that you both enjoy.
Some examples are: walk together in a park, mall or street, buy ice cream, play sports, have
a slice of pizza, window shop, bake challah, and more. You don't need all the answers to life's
challenges, but you do need to be able to listen quietly without a judgmental response. You may
remember a time when a friend, Rebbe or relative was there for you when you needed them most.
Even as little as one hour a week, consistently, is a great gift to a child in need.
Three typical profiles of mentors:
1: You are in your late 20's or early 30's. Your children are still young enough (and your family size is small enough) to allow you the luxury of committing one hour every week to a child/teen.
2: You are in your late 40's or early 50's. Your children are old enough to allow you the necessary time. You have the experience and maturity to understand the broad scope of issues which today's children face.
3: You are single and 18 to 29 years of age. You have a lot of time outside of work, school and family. Your energy and enthusiasm are infectious.
Skills/Qualities you possess:
- Good listener
- Sensitivity to the needs of others
- Professionally trained
- Knows personal limitations
