What advice do you have for prospective mentors?

 

There is a kid out there that can benefit from your mentoring.  You don’t have to be the best at what you’re doing to be a mentor, those relationships benefit both mentors and mentees with growth. 

 

What do you like most about DonCARES?

 

DonCARES is a unique mentoring organization founded and ran by us for us. There is a necessity for representation in mentorship, and DonCARES ensures just that. 

 

 

What has being in a mentoring relationship taught you about yourself? 

 

My mentoring relationship taught me how to be accountable and allowed me to better carry myself. As a mentor you are accountable for your time-management and maintaining a relationship with your mentee.
