2e Teen Mentor Group
ABOUT THIS SERIES:
What’s one of the most valuable elements a bright and quirky teen can have in their life to lead to future success as a young adult? Many families tell us, it’s having a mentor (who’s not the parent!) who can advise teens on what to do and not do as they experiment toward adulting. Parents can say things ‘til they’re blue in the face, but when a cool big brother-type shares, it’s a whole different story. Teens will join inspiring mentor and 2e instructor, Samuel Young, to share valuable lessons, resources and thought-provoking conversations, all in an atmosphere of acceptance and friendship. Brought to you by our friends at Young Scholars Academy, featuring 2e instructor and director, Samuel Young.
