Helping youth network can be frustrating when you aren’t sure how to connect kids to key people who can help them achieve their goals. But it isn’t always as difficult as it seems! One approach that can make this process easier is to develop an ecomap.

Even when youth think they have no one to help them, an ecomap can reveal all sorts of valuable connections.  Sign up for weekly tips from the #EverydayMentoring newsletter.
