Over the history mentoring was a role that men practiced on younger boys. In South Africa this role faded and is not necessary practiced on purpose by men. Adult men as natural mentors for adolescent boys are not necessary equipped with the needed knowledge and skills how to fulfil this role. This role as mentor demand lots of time and attention from the adult male and also that the adult understand the perceptions of the adolescent boy. Adolescent boys long for to be mentored. This mentor does not need to be the biological father, but he needs to be an adult male. This influence of the mentor helps the adolescent experience a higher quality of life. The adolescent boy as mentee has certain needs within the mentor relationship. These needs need to be understood an interpretative correctly by the adult mentor. To equip the adult male and adolescent boy with the needed knowledge and skills within each and the other’s milieu, an active empowerment program is developed. This active orientated empowerment program sketched a paradigm of the mentor relationship. This empowerment program focuses on the characteristic of men, emotional intelligence, generation gaps and the mentor relationship. Activities are integrated in the sessions to fulfil the needs of the mentees. The profile of the adolescent boy as mentee and the adult male as mentor are represented in article 1 and 2. Article 3 and 4 are the empowerment program and the results of the empowerment program.
