Mentoring is the process by which an experienced person provides advice, support, and encouragement to a less experienced person. Every adult on a FIRST team is a mentor simply because he or she leads through guidance and example. Kids can also learn mentoring skills.
Who are FIRST Mentors and Coaches? Our team members say it best. A Mentor/Coach:
Can be a person of any age, teaching others what they know
Brings either technical or non-technical expertise to the team
Provides the opportunity for students to learn directly through experiences
