What is an adult Mentor?
An adult mentor is an individual who wholeheartedly believes in the potential of youth to become leaders in this movement. Adults are supportive mentors who encourage participation, positive development, and organization in the youth. They actively listen to and learn from youth, and these adults view youth and everything they have to offer as assets to enhance the movement.
As Adults, it’s time to invest in our youth.
You can do this by dedicating your time, energy and resources to support them in joining TAP.
Why Adult Mentors?
