10 Questions to Inspire Mentoring

With January drawing to a close, activity in the mentoring community is likely to slow down a bit. In order to help your program carry some of that National Mentoring Month momentum into February, here are some questions you can use to inspire people to become mentors.

10 Questions to Inspire Mentoring

  1. How has mentoring made a difference in your life or in your community?
  2. If you had a mentor, how did this person or people make you feel special? How did they help you get where you are today?
  3. If you were a mentor, how did you change from this relationship?
  4. What do you think are challenges young people in our community face today?
  5. What do you think are strengths possessed by youth in our community today?
  6. Who is responsible for making sure young people become happy, healthy, successful, and productive young adults?
  7. How can we work together in our community to make sure that no child is left behind and that every youth feels like she has something to offer this world?
  8. How can you help – can you personally volunteer time, donate money or in-kind services or goods, or connect us to more opportunities?
  9. How can people, companies, and institutions in your network help?
  10. How can we let more people know that a small investment in time now becomes worth it when you see a young person thrive over time?
