MENTORING MATTERS

January is National Mentoring Month.  During its 26 year history of serving boys 7-18 years of age in the Greensboro/High Point communities, the B.O.T.S.O. organization has had the privileged of having African American male mentors who are committed to the growth and development of our young males. B.O.T.S.O. Mentors live our mission of “directing   our mentees to positive outcomes so their future resembles not sheets of statistics but rather portfolios of success”. We pay tribute to the following mentors: William Spencer, Waymon Martin, Chi Wall, Isaiah Haamid

TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL MENTORING EXPERIENCE

  • Be attentive: listen; engage no judgement
  • Keep your commitment days and times
  • Higher education is not a requirement to mentor
  • Learn about African American history to help debunk the myths about our youth
  • Never engage in inappropriate behavior to for or with mentees
  • Arguing with mentees is not allowed, seek guidance of Program Director
  • Report suspected child abuse
  • Sensitive information should not be solicited or shared
  • Remember You are the adult
  • Disrespect is prohibited

Mentors are trusted advisors, friend, teacher, and wise person. If you have a caring heart and want to make a difference in the community consider becoming a B.O.T.S.O. mentor. We would love to hear from you.
