Abstract

Adult educators have not as yet investigated the vast movement of adults who mentor socially excluded youth. But these mentors are adult learners too. Their experiences suggest that mentoring – in any context – may entail the ‘toxic’ learning of emotional labour. More attention should be paid to their training from a perspective of social justice.
