HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:

Everyday interactions with young people have the potential to be impactful, more so than we often realize. Adopting a mentoring mindset can increase our chances of positively influencing the journey of a child, youth, young adult, and beyond. A mentoring mindset can turn everyday interactions into brief but impactful mentoring moments and support the development of more lasting mentoring relationships.

The overarching principle of a mentoring mindset consists of being intentional and approaching every interaction as an opportunity for growth and connection. Remember that we don’t have to know it all, have all the answers or have it all figured out to impact a young person’s journey.
