January is National Mentoring Month. and January 17th is International Mentoring Day, so Melissa Jones, founder of the Girls Positivity Club, joined us today to share how people benefit from having mentors, the different types of mentoring and what qualifies someone to be a good mentor.

Informal and formal types of mentoring for youth:

5 questions to ask yourself if you are considering becoming a mentor:

  1. Do you like having a positive impact on others (especially youth)?
  2. Are you a good listener?
  3. Can you put yourself in someone else’s shoes (show empathy)? 
  4. Do you have the ability to see solutions and opportunities?
  5. Do you have the flexibility to meet either formally or informally?
