The process of signing up is simple and generates several options in a short amount of time. Reading through the opportunities, I was excited to learn about how many efforts were available for people to get involved with.
The two years I have been a mentor through Be-A-Mentor have been so rewarding. The training and support is amazing. They have offered many activities, suggestions, and opportunities to foster my relationship with my mentee. The impact mentors make on the lives of children is immeasurable. It can open them to a world of hope, friendship, and education as they work toward their full potential.

I have been a mentor with Be A Mentor for almost four years. I believe I have been a big help to my mentee and I have really enjoyed getting to know her. It has been challenging at times yet still rewarding.
Be A Mentor has supported me with training, fun activities to participate in with my mentee, and meetings with other mentors so that we can discuss what works and our concerns.
I definitely think that people should be mentors if they have time and a flexible personality. There is a huge need for mentors. The mentees appreciate the opportunity to have a mentor and the opportunity to develop additional skills.

And i am looking for this chance for a long time. i would like to talk to people fact to face. i always chat with someone on the Internet.sometime i listen to them,and give some advise to them. when they feel better, i found myself more happy than them. so,please give me a chance! thanks!

To be very honest, I would like to be a mentor because I need the community service-volunteer work for College that I am attending. After researching for community service-volunteer work for my first time in my life, I believe this organization would be something I will be looking forward to. Why? I am 20 years old, and I applied for the college I am currently attending without looking into it. I didn't take high school seriously. I know I could of got straight A's, and proabably had many scholarships to pay off my tuition. Wish I had someone by my side to tell me what to do and make sure I do it well, because most kids don't know what is good for them at the time until they grow up and realize that is why your parents made you do that. If I can, I would love to guide and be a friend to a youth. I am a very friendly, down-to-earth, honest, most caring person, who don't mind explaining to the point you completely understand. It would be nice to try new things.
