Mentorship 


BUILDS HOPE

Particularly for young people, fear of the future can be crippling. People can feel detached when thinking about what lies ahead. Mentors are often able to guide their social lives and professional lives. A mentor helps their mentee work toward goals and accelerates their progress, reducing anxiety and instilling hope around the future.

Resource 

Community Forums are a great option for all kinds of individuals, but it all depends on what you’re comfortable with.  
When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time.
Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.
