The Mentoring Network Inc.
September 5, 2013

I have had the pleasure to be involved as a mentor with The Mentoring Network for the past 8 years. I am having a great time with my current mentee; she is an outstanding young person. It is not difficult, but does require a commitment of an hr. a week plus some other occasional get-togethers. The most important thing that I do is be a friend to my young lady, but I also encourage excellent school attendance. We talk about life, classes at school, siblings, pets, cooking and goals for her future. Because of my age, I can give her lots of free advice and she listens to me. I think she is fun and keeps me young. Additionally, I support her mother and all that she does for her family and try to help my mentee see how hard she works for her family. This young lady is an excellent role mode to her five younger siblings.
I love the activities the Network provides for the kids and the enthusiasm & professional attitudes the leaders provides for the program. Honestly, I have a great time and would encourage others to get involved.

Magically provide many more adults to be part of this great nonprofit. We need more adults to give an hour a week. It does not matter if you travel, you can work around your travel schedules. What great, positive, enthusiastic people the group has as leaders and workers; they are an inspiration to us all, young and old. Three cheers for The Mentoring Network!
