[Open Forum]


You guys did such an aweseome job coming up with "Summer Activities," I thought I would open up our blog conversation for you to post comments, questions, and ideas about anything pertaining to mentoring and your relationship with your mentee. This forum is a great place to exchange ideas, give advice, and to ask those questions you've been dying to ask more seasoned mentors. :-) Please do not use the real name of your mentee in any of your posts on this blog. I am looking forward to seeing what you all have to say!

From one of our "seasoned mentors":
"I really can offer only one simple suggestion to new mentors. Just be a friend, that's what my kids have wanted. Don't worry about trying anything serious....Perhaps one other prospective. Mentors DO make a difference, even when the student gives NO clue at all."

Thanks Juliana, for the encouragement! It's so good to know that I am having a good influence even when my mentee doesn't particularly show it.

I've been mentoring for about almost two years, and it has been very rewarding for me.
