Focus: Volunteers/mentors By spending just one hour with your mentee each week, you’ll have an amazing sense of accomplishment as you give back to your community and see the positive impact you can have on a child who needs your guidance. Being a mentor is about sharing the best parts of your character with your mentee. As in any relationship with that level of trust and sharing, you are almost certain to develop a long-lasting friendship. In the end, you will find you get as much out of that friendship as your mentee. One hour each week: that’s all it takes.
