Research shows that Mentoring: (Raposa, et. al. 2019)
Models positive social skills and facilitates interpersonal connections beyond family.
Helps young people interpret and manage life challenges, including relationships with peers and parents.
Facilitates meaningful conversations that boost cognitive skills and provides perspective.
Strengthens self-regulation, one’s ability to manage emotions and impulses—to think before acting.
Promotes identity development, a key task of adolescence, through modeling core qualities that contribute to human thriving, like empathy, curiosity, resourcefulness, and resilience.
Opens doors to new ways of thinking, resources, and opportunities.
Fosters self-efficacy—a belief in oneself.
WHAT IS RISE / HOW DO WE DO IT?
RISE is a team of world-class athletes on a mission to create lasting, foundational change through our results-proven Mindset Development Program.
We recruit the best athletes in the world – Olympic, Professional, & Elite, and train them in the tenets of sport & positive psychology. We then pair them with teen athletes in what has been deemed the most important relationship during developmental years – MENTORSHIP.
The best thing you can do for your child is to find a supportive mentor. Studies show that teenage athletes with a quality mentor relationship experience greater long-term success (The Mentoring Effect, 2014).
We are the leaders in supporting teen athletes in their quest for success.
We are RISE.
Stay tuned through the upcoming weeks as we elaborate on how the brain develops throughout the teen years and why this is such a critical stage for proper guidance, support, and mindset development.
