Step 1: Check for opportunity

Look for volunteer opportunities online and in your community, and choose one that's right for you. For example, if you volunteer at a school, you can help teach students the importance of education.

Step 2: Mentor a co-worker

Mentor a co-worker by helping them set career goals. Teach them how to improve their performance at work. Be available when they need guidance and support.

Be a role model by maintaining a positive attitude.

Step 3: Mentor a friend, family member, or neighbor

Mentor someone already close to you such as a child who lives in your neighborhood, a relative, or an acquaintance. Offer to help rather than waiting for them to ask.

Giving support, being a friend, and listening are a few traits of a good mentor.

Step 4: Take time

Take the time to get to know your mentee. Take an interest in what is important to them.

Kids who attend schools that teach self-discipline and motivation are less likely to commit crimes and more likely to finish high school.
