The Role of a PEF Mentor
Mentors establish a safe and trusting space where a scholar can speak openly.
Mentors listen to their scholar’s academic concerns and troubleshoot problems regarding school performance, time management, organization, and access to resources.
Mentors act as a sounding board for scholars, as they consider their options for tertiary study.
Mentors build their scholar’s confidence, encouraging them as they develop their skills, seek out new opportunities, and map out a path to help them achieve their goals.
