Through this process, mentors also become more patient and learn to utilize active listening skills. They are often the most valuable in bridging the gap between instructors and other students. And one of the most rewarding benefits of this program is that the mentor feels a sense of self-satisfaction from their service to others. They experience the feeling of pride when their mentees are successful.
When children and teens take part in near-peer programs such as the TNT Team, all participants can reap the benefits. Mentees generally become the next set of mentors and the cycle of spreading these valuable life skills continues. This often makes the next set of mentor/mentee relationships easier because this has been modeled over and over again and the successes in the program build on each other.
