One-to-one or small group mentor-ship occurs between an Antioch staff member or leader and a youth. These meetings usually occur after school or on weekend afternoons and allow the leader and youth to build a relationship that would not be possible in a large group setting. Youth tend to be more comfortable sharing issues when they have the individual attention of an Antioch leader. Mentor-ship often occurs at a fast-food restaurant, a sporting event, a park or any place the youth and leader agree upon. For many of our kids, this is one of the best parts of our program because they have a safe, caring adult all to themselves.
