5 Great Benefits of Mentoring for High School Students

Mentoring is a great way for you to pass your knowledge, wisdom and advice to a Pewaukee student as he or she grows and learns. It also allows you to give back to the school that helped you get where you are today and can even help you grow and develop as a leader and professional.

Mentees often go on to do big things, thanks in part to the person who took time to be their mentor. They may even go on to become a mentor themselves—creating a legacy of giving back.

Here are five ways high school students benefit from a mentorship:

  1. Students gain practical, applicable advice that might not be taught in the classroom. They’ll enter college or the job force with an advantage over pure classroom learners.

  2. Mentorships create a bond benefiting everything from professional networking to personal growth at a pivotal time in a high school student’s life. A mentor is a guide for students facing uncertainty in their future.

  3. Mentees get one-on-one attention, helping them to better understand and retain information while also connecting that knowledge to classroom lessons.

  4. Students get a better understanding of real-world expectations and applications, direct from someone who has experience. This necessary dose of reality will shape their understanding of the world outside the classroom.

  5. Mentorship is free! It affords students access to a crucial resource for development that’s not hidden behind a financial barrier. For students unable to afford tutoring or those disadvantaged by a lack of available programs, mentoring is an incredibly valuable experience.
