There are many benefits to helping children and young people in education mentoring their peers for both the mentors and the mentees, including:
being mentored by someone of a similar age who understands what you are going through;
talking to someone independent from the situation;
developing confidence and communication skills;
developing listening skills;
develops problem solving skills;
teaches skills for the workplace.
