The benefits of mentoring go both ways. Often adult mentors report that their mentoring experiences have improved their lives in tangible ways. Not only do they feel better about themselves for playing a positive role in a young person’s life, but they also find that mentoring teaches them more about themselves. Many mentors reported that mentoring a young person increased their sense of responsibility and accomplishment. In fact, in a national survey of adults who mentored young people, 83 percent indicated that they learned or gained something personally from their mentoring experience. They reported feeling that they had become a better person, developed more patience, developed new friendships, felt more effective and acquired new skills. Also, mentoring provides networking opportunities and gives you and your company the opportunity to give back.
* Be a part of an exciting new initiative that will positively impact the lives of thousands of local youth, by participating in the PEEP eMentoring Project.
Allow us to film you “at work”. Your footage will then be edited and turned into a professionally done 3 to 5 minute video to be posted on the PEEP eMentoring Project website. The video will give students an up close view of your industry, highlighting the skills and training necessary to succeed in it. Thousands of local young people will view your video allowing you and your company to inform, inspire and impact lives over and over again! OR, blog about your educational experiences and professional background for the PEEP eMentoring Project.
*Plan to attend the annual PEEP Luncheon in February 2012.
The annual PEEP Luncheon puts over 200 Charlotte-Mecklenburg high school students face to face with skilled professionals and entrepreneurs for enlightening discussions about education, careers and entrepreneurship. The luncheon motivates, inspires and guides local youth while helping them see the link between doing well in school and future success.
Thank you! We can do so much more with your support!
