YOLO Mentoring approaches mentoring with a unique model and program. All mentors are strong, positive male role models who meet consistently with their youth to establish positive patterns that will ultimately guide them into responsible adulthood. This is achieved through YOLO Mentoring’s four main building blocks:
1. Education – Creating successful educational achievements – The mentor will meet with the participant to ensure proper assistance is provided in regards to their success in school and educational activities.
2. Social Skills – Build self-awareness and control – Effective communication and appropriate coping skills are said to be the hardest concepts to master in today’s society. This is why the mentors are devoted to teaching these two vital skills to all of their youths. They will address negative behaviors and promote wiser choices so youth are able to make the better decision when faced with an impulsive or critical decision-making situation.
3. Vocational Training – Develop practical training – YOLO Mentoring has partnered with local employers in the community to teach teenagers valuable career lessons. They will work on specific skills to prepare them for the workplace, build their resume and even have the chance to participate in mock interviews with real employers for true “real world” experience. In some cases, the teenagers who participate in the mock interviews are actually offered employment by the organization.
4. Community Service – Participating in something bigger than oneself – Mentors will provide each youth with opportunities to get involved in the community. Through local partnerships, YOLO Mentoring participates in volunteering sessions that give the youth the opportunity to mingle together, socialize, and give back to the community.
