Mentors can help inspire a career or help us through tough times! Sometimes, having a mentor who is a successful adult can help us identify careers and jobs that we may not have thought about before. Mentors can also help us with difficult family situations and help us grow up to also be good role models because of the great examples they set for us. A mentor can be a family member, teacher, counselor, or community member. Organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters or MENTOR can help you connect with a mentor. Make sure you check with your family before investigating mentor options.
