Comfort (2023) identified the potential benefits of youth mentoring experienced by young people, using a qualitative methodology. This paper outlines the programme, mentor and mentee practices that were identified during the research. Following these practices will offer young people emotional support as well as new and potentially transformational opportunities. The practices will help develop the assets, or protective characteristics, innate in young people. They will help mentees activate their assets to access support and resources from the networks around them, allowing young people to gain the most from being mentored
