Palmetto Youth Connection mission is to provide young people, ages 12-18, with positive alternatives to at-risk behaviors, while at the same time promoting increased educational attainment, teen driving safety, leadership development, AIDS/HIV awareness, community involvement and teen dating violence (domestic violence). We recognize the value in all young people by believing that each deserves an opportunity to achieve their full potential and live a life which is defined by personal responsibility, achievement and community involvement.
Mentors understand the need to assume a number of different roles during the course of a mentoring relationship, but successful mentors also share the same basic qualities:
**A sincere desire to be involved with a young person **Respect for young people **Active listener **Empathy **See solutions and opportunities **Be flexible and open
Through our One on One sessions students are provided tutoring and homework support. Students are also given the opportunity to learn gender-specific life skills training on topics such as self-esteem, pregnancy prevention, personal grooming, personal safety and self-defense, loss and grief, relationships and emotions, and career and educational goals.
