The Young Person thereupon waited anxiously to hear what the messages were, but the Countess seemed disinclined to mention them
Come, come, if nothing else will put you at your ease, I'll make the tea and have a cup with you." I think those were the words, as reported excitably, in my presence, by the Young Person. At any rate, the Countess insisted on making the tea, and carried her ridiculous ostentation of humility so far as to take one cup herself, and to insist on the girl's taking the other.
In other words, he descended immediately into a bottomless pit of confusion, and the Young Person followed him down.
It is unnecessary to say that my interference enabled me, in due course of time, to ascertain the purport of the Young Person's remarks.
"I should feel very much obliged to you, sir, if you would kindly tell me what I had better do," remarked the Young Person.
I thought it high time to help the Young Person out.
But why do Young Persons in service all perspire at the hands?
"It's far beyond the more traditional approach, and absolutely enlightening to find not only has that business or individual had an impact on that young person
's aspirations and confidence, but the young person
has usually been able to open their mentor's eyes to something new as well."
"Staff and volunteers work alongside each young person
, demonstrating, coaching, supporting and encouraging and most importantly never giving up as each young person
gains in competence, independence and confidence."
