BBBS creates individual and group mentoring relationships amongst adults and youth.
Mentorship is a two-way, learning and development partnership where the young person needs are placed at the centre.
Because young people’s brains are still developing, mentoring can support that process through back-and-forth interaction like the volley in a good game of ping-pong.
Mentoring is an important way to give youth experience with these essential back-and-forth relationships, developing them into healthy young people better able to deal with and overcome life’s adversities.
