Why do you volunteer as a Mentor?

The New Sector Residency provided me with so many opportunities to develop professionally – service at Aspire Public Schools, interactions with other Fellows, excellent trainings and connections with the alumni network. One of the greatest formative experiences during my New Sector year was meeting regularly with my amazing mentor, Julie Kidd, and discussing my project, career plans and life goals. I wanted to volunteer as a New Sector Mentor in order to provide a current Fellow with the critical support and guidance that I received from Julie.

Every experience with my mentee is a great one! Between goal setting for 2015, and discussing networking strategies or career directions, each conversation teaches me something new about myself and gets me excited and energized for the week ahead!
