Modern Mentorship Immersion For Today’s Young Adults

Value of Mentorship

Urban Edge offers young adults the varied mentorship opportunities needed to create healthy lives, find and pursue core interests, and get plugged into a vibrant community of peers chasing success.

The role of our mentors is to encourage the personal, academic, and professional development of our clients through the sharing of knowledge, expertise and experience. The mentoring relationship is built on mutual trust, respect and communication, and involves both parties meeting regularly to exchange ideas, discuss progress, and set goals for further development.

Mentorship provides unparalleled personal and professional development opportunities, helping young adults overcome obstacles, structure their lives well for the long haul and even have a leg up.   Having the guidance, encouragement, and non-judgemental support of a trusted and experienced mentor provides a client with a broader and more realistic understanding of their potential.

General Benefits of Mentorship:

  • Exposure to new ideas and novel ways of thinking
  • The opportunity to develop new skills and knowledge
  • Developing lesser-known strengths 
  • Guidance on academic development and career advancement
  • Competitive advantages through strategic partnerships

We help every client who works with our team craft their potential. We’ll give them the day-to-day support they need so they can learn how to hold a steady job, eat healthy, improve self-care, build relationships, and pursue and accomplish their goals in an organic fashion. We’ll get them plugged in to academic, apprenticeship, internship and employment opportunities so they can develop the skills they need to feel empowered and move forward with confidence.
