Mentoring is at the heart of the Eagle’s Nest model. Mentors serve as role models who actively build healthy, trusting relationships with the boys in the program, providing them with guidance, friendship, assistance, and an attentive ear. The counsel that our mentors share from their wealth of experience is a priceless gift that benefits the boys tremendously. Eagle’s Nest mentoring is not limited to adults, however, as we also encourage the older boys to see themselves as role models or “junior mentors” to the younger boys in the program, who look up to their older peers.
