We at StudentMentor.org know the value of mentors.

This month, it’s time to honor those selfless professionals who have provided countless hours of their time mentoring. Students and grads, who have taken advantage of our free service, directly benefit from years of experience mentors bring to their mentoring relationships.

Mentors provide guidance, support and industry knowledge to mentees. Often, mentors introduce mentees to their professional contacts, allowing worthwhile networking to take place, building a bridge to the future. Additionally, mentors boost the self-esteem of mentees by believing in what they can accomplish. The many words of encouragement a mentor speaks are remembered and cherished for a lifetime.

Honor the mentors in your life today! Here are a few suggestions:

The best gifts a mentee can give a mentor are their appreciation–and the promise to pass on the gift they’ve been given by becoming a mentor.
