The goal of a youth mentor is to give kids some positive guidance and a sense of direction in their formative years. They hope to inspire young people to lead healthy, ambitious lives, which may include topics like taking school seriously, finding their calling in life, studying hard, and learning how to interact with others in a healthy way.
"Motivation comes from within. You have to be inspired. That's what I do. I inspire people, I inspire the public, I inspire my staff.."
