Adults interested in becoming a student mentor must be someone who will be a positive influence in a student's life. The most crucial role for a mentor is to be an adult who has time for a student, who cares, who believes, and is committed to a long term relationship with the student. It is very important to know that the relationship between the mentor and the student may be the ONLY stability the he/she knows. Therefore, mentors are asked to spend a minimum of one hour every week with their mentee. This relationship between the mentee and mentor takes place during the school day at the studentís school.
