This year was my first year being a mentor for the MentorU program. I have to say that I have been impressed with everything overall. From the mentor application process, to the very last meet up we had with our mentees, everything was very well coordinated.
What I have been most impressed with is how well the program coordinators matched my mentee and me. Our conversations and messages through the app just flowed really well. The prompts we were given each week was a great way to start a conversation but also helped cultivate a relationship of trust between Shay and me.
The meet ups were my second favorite, okay maybe a tie for first favorite! Seeing Shay light up when we were able to see each other in person was absolutely wonderful! The program coordinators also did a wonderful job setting up great activities that kept us engaged and learning about one another. I am really looking forward to our summer meet up and to the next school year. Being a part of this program as a MentorU mentor has helped me grow in so many ways as a person, parent and professional and I am grateful. I can’t recommend this program enough and I am so happy to be a part of it!
