Research shows that that failed mentoring relationships (lasting < 6 months) often result in more harm to a young person's development than if no mentoring relationship had begun. Therefore, honouring this commitment is very important.
I have made Brothers in Arms aware of things that may be pertinent to my potential role as a mentor. I understand that by submitting this application I am not guaranteed acceptance as a volunteer with Brothers in Arms or its community partners.
If accepted, I will commit to meeting weekly with a young person for a minimum of 1 year. I understand that dishonoured commitments are detrimental to young people's lives.
