Developmental Relationships and Mentoring

I stumbled upon this article from the Search Institute on "Developmental Relationships" and I thought the information was SO good! This is why mentoring is so important!

"Research shows that developmental relationships help young people discover who they are, cultivate the abilities that they need to shape their own lives, and learn how to engage with and contribute to the world around them.

When mentors take the time to build trust and form these critical relationships with young people, our communities are stronger, more resilient, and healthier."

Thank you for intentionally connecting with your mentee to impact their life and our communities!
