VBEC mentors spend at least 30 minutes a week with a student.

The following are among the mentor's functions:

• Teaching the student about a specific issue

• Coaching the student on a particular skill

• Facilitating the student's growth by sharing resources and networks

• Challenging the student to move beyond his or her comfort zone

• Creating a safe learning environment for taking risks

• Focusings on the student's total development

The SureBET Program is very flexible program.
