Over the past few years I’ve supported a number of young people at our local high school. In my work I’ve drawn heavily on the following mentoring resources which provide a good number of challenges, activities, quizzes and exercises.
Each booklet is designed to allow mentors to dip in and out of them whenever they need to. It is not envisaged that every exercise is used consecutively – instead only when appropriate to your discussions. Also the exercises should be used only be used as prompts for discussion and not take the place of Mentors initiating conversation. These conversations are what makes the mentoring experience so special.
