At Bethany, students entering their 10th grade year begin a two year mentoring relationship with a mentor of their choosing. The mentor is a caring adult who shares time, conversation and experience for the growth and encouragement of the student.
Mentoring is the act of helping someone learn. Mentors can serve as a teacher, friend, guide and encourager. At the same, this relationship is intended to be mutually beneficial. Both the mentor and the mentee commit to participate for a specified period of time. Bethany arranges for a two year commitment with a scheduled minimum of one meeting per month.
Materials to help bring direction to the mentoring relationship are provided. Both the mentor and the mentee receive these materials.
