Why be a Mentor

Mentoring, at its core, guarantees mentees that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day to day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter and are able to reach what was previously thought unattainable.

Quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects in a variety of personal, academic and professional situations.
