Meet the Youth Mentoring Team
Kia Ora, We are WYT’s Mentors
Mentor’s are safe adults who you can talk to and explore what you would like to achieve as a young person and as an adult. Mentors aren’t there to tell you what to do, they are there to help you make the best decisions for you.
When you first meet your mentor, they will chat with you about how the mentoring service works, mentee and mentor rights & responsibilities and client confidentiality.
Over your first few sessions, as you and your mentor get to know one another, the mentor will help you formulate some goal and work with you to create a plan on how to achieve this goal.
Once a goal has been identified the mentor will support you to achieve this goal by walking along side you, helping you find the right information, create community connections, providing you with helpful tools, brainstorming, and learning alongside you
