Share What You Know...Mentor a Child

To be a mentor, you don't need any special skills—just an ability to listen and to offer friendship, guidance, and encouragement to a young person growing up today. And you'll be amazed by how much you'll get out of the experience.

So, share what you know. Become a mentor.
