It can also be less time-intensive and more cost-effective than one-on-one mentoring.

E-mentoring is a form of mentoring that takes place online, typically through email or a secure messaging platform. E-mentoring can be a good option for young people who are unable to meet in person with a mentor due to location or other constraints. It can also be a flexible and convenient option for busy mentors.

Peer mentoring involves young people mentoring other young people. Peer mentors may be slightly older or more experienced than their mentees, and may provide guidance and support on a variety of topics, such as academic or personal development. Peer mentoring can be a positive and empowering experience for both the mentor and mentee.

Career mentoring focuses specifically on helping young people develop the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a chosen career path. Career mentors may provide advice on job search strategies, resume writing, interviewing skills, and networking.

Academic mentoring is focused on supporting young people to achieve academic success. Academic mentors may provide assistance with homework, study skills, time management, and organization.
