 Why I Mentor.....

Grecia Degado
"I volunteer as a mentor because I know how helpful it is to speak to someone who has been there, done that"

Clayton Desmore
Mentoring to me is an act of sharing what knowledge I have learned through books, someone with knowledge about an area they have studied, or just life itself.

Every adult, male/female, father/mother, uncle/aunt, or older brother/sister can be a mentor.

A good example of becoming a good mentor
  • Must be someone that I respect and someone who respects me
  • Must have good character that can show me the good in me
  • Must be someone that will not JUDGE me
  • To hear the ones you have helped say "Thank you, Mr. Clay"
"The only way we are going to build better communities is to give our best to our children"

Tony Erdman
"I volunteer as a mentor because I want to empower a bright young person to have confidence in themselves"

Jeff Hoffer
"It is a unique opportunity to directly help someone in need"

Brent Jaffe
"I mentor to lead by example"

Joel Moses
"I volunteer as a mentor to offer the same opportunities to my two mentees since 2007, as those for me to pursue my own career aspirations made possible through the support of my mentors-teachers and scholarship programs back in the 1960s and 1970s"

Christopher White
"I volunteer as a mentor because I really enjoy seeing young people reach their potential"

Judy Yunwo
"I volunteer as a mentor because I believe it takes a village to raise a child and I was once that child, now I am the mentor and I continue to be blessed.  I am so thankful to be a blessing to a child as I had a mentor believe in me and so it is my duty/responsibility to let a child know that I believe in her or him"
