Mentor Appreciation Month: The Many Powers of Mentorship

January is Mentor Appreciation Month.

It’s a great time to make mentoring a New Year’s resolution. Forbes reports mentoring is a highly underutilized, but incredibly powerful professional growth tool: mentoring. Now is the perfect time to explore the positive impact that mentoring can have on your career. Whether you are the mentor or the mentee, the mentoring relationship can push your career to new heights.

For individuals, studies show that good mentoring can lead to greater career success, including promotions, raises, and increased opportunities!

We asked our mentors to share their stories to inspire others to mentor. The impact a mentor can make sharing time with a young person is tremendous:

Cindy Dodson: “If you are thinking about being a mentor, DO IT! I have volunteered for many years and this has been my most rewarding service! It is so rewarding helping these teenagers socially, emotionally and academically I am honored and grateful to have time with my mentees.”
