Mentor Tips

Tell stories to highlight lessons learned throughout your career. Share your experience and what you’ve learned to help your mentee gain wisdom. Tell the specific stories of what you learned and how you learned it.

Seek understanding before providing advice. Aim to fully understand where your mentee is coming from before offering advice. This helps to ensure you’re addressing the real problem rather than its symptom.

Give your full attention. Building a connection with your mentee is vital to a successful experience. When you listen to them and make them feel heard, it boosts their confidence. It also helps you understand what suggestions to make to help them grow.

Highlight areas of growth you see in them. As your mentee achieves their goals, celebrate them. Remind them of how far they’ve come and what areas of development you’ve seen. This also enhances the experience and gives them the confidence to tackle other challenges.

Empathize, empathize, empathize. It strengthens the relationship when you empathize with your mentee's challenges. Practicing empathy can also make you a better leader.

Benefits of Volunteering

One of the more well-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. With the help of volunteers, the organization can stretch its budget further and provide more support to the young adults it serves. Even helping with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people, and the organizations in need.
