Mentors are an immediate and constant resource for friendship as students are building relationships outside of the program. While they provide examples of healthy young adult living, they are not supervisors or authority figures telling the student what they can and can’t do.
Social and Recreational Mentoring
Mentors are a resource to students to helping them to find ways to relax, unwind, have fun and stay balanced. They provide options and ideas for filling free-time whether it is simply playing a game, seeing a movie, going to a concert, or participating in Friday Night Majic at the local game store. When a student has an activity or personal interest they want to pursue, mentors can help identify opportunities, provide transportation and if desired participate alongside them.
Whether trying to make a fresh start or experiencing nervousness about the first time living on their own, many of our students have appreciated the option of having a mentor as a supportive apartment-mate.
