dc.description.abstractWith the explosion of social media, virtual relationships, and online communities, ementoring - also known as online mentoring or virtual mentoring - will change the way traditional mentors and students interact with one another. Mentors are known for their ability to enhance relationships with their students, cultivating a strong connection by establishing support and guidance. The advantages of e-mentoring include the freedom to communicate at any given time, the lack of time constraints, the opportunity for youths to be more open and direct, and an increase in trust and sense of security between the mentor and mentee. The Net generation habitat is rooted in technology. Their environment consists of social networking sites, such as Facebook, MySpace and instantly accessible virtual world gaming sites. Technology has introduced new concerns and risks that need to be addressed and managed appropriately, by developing a program that addresses the issues that they face online with their social networking community, equipping them with knowledge to combat negativity and to mediate when they see one of their peers being attacked by cyber-bullies for inappropriate photo posts, and making them aware of the consequences of their digital footprint.en_US
