Young Adults - Why Mentoring Programs?

Why Mentoring for Young Adults

Young adults, who are not confident about their abilities need to be helped with timely support. They require a sense of security which high quality mentoring programs can provide. It is about opening a young adult's mind to infinite possibilities and discovering himself/herself.

Who is a Mentor?

A Mentor can be described as a trusted and experienced adviser who guides, supports and encourages the young adult in his or her life goals.


The Mentor provides resources, support and also constructive feedback. A mentor encourages the young adult in developing his/her skills and potential.

What are the benefits of having a Mentor as a young adult?

Mentoring has a number of positive effects on the personal development of young adults. A survey of mentees conducted before and after they signed up for mentoring programs revealed the ones with a mentor had an improved self image. The mentees also became more confident about their future.

The majority of participating young adults felt that:


  • They displayed confidence of performing well in job interviews
  • They had improved when it came to organizing their work
  • They noticed an improvement in their decision making
  • They were more confident when interacting with people and even strangers
