The NYP Mentors are a group of enthusiastic volunteers who perform weekly academic coaching, enrichment, and life skills workshops for primary & secondary school students.
The NYP Mentors not only serve as mentors and role models to these younger students, but befriend them as Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Seeing Mentees improve in their schoolwork and personal development is one of best feelings a Mentor can receive in return. As mentors, members learn how to manage mischievous students, motivate weaker ones and at the same time, practice greater patience and empathy. By harnassing NYP's leadership values of Respect, Resilience, Integrity, Caring and Teamwork, members are able use their experience to benefit younger teens so that they can “be the change that we wish to see in the world.”
