Mentoring is a two-way street. You get out what you put in.

A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.

Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.

Mentorship happens organically, and you can’t just force it.

Mentoring is a professional activity, a trusted relationship, a meaningful commitment. Mentoring is important, not only because of the knowledge and skills young people can learn from mentor, but also mentoring provides professional socialization and personal support.

Peer mentors participate in informal relationships in which colleagues or friends pair up to help each other grow within an organization. They might team up to gain professional experience, share contacts or simply support each other’s career path choices.

Mentoring relationships provide valuable support to young people, especially those with disabilities, by offering not only academic and career guidance, but also effective role models for leadership, interpersonal and problem-solving skills to facilitate success in life.
