Why do you volunteer as a New Sector Mentor?

Being a New Sector Mentor is a fantastic way to use my professional skill set in a meaningful way. I’m grateful for the opportunity to be involved in New Sector’s positive work and to have connected with my mentee, Megan, whose passion for her work is contagious and energizing.

Tell us about a great experience with your Mentee.

I had the chance to see my Mentee, Megan Dunne, present her goals to her colleagues in her partner organization this fall. I was struck by how much everyone in that room supports her and wants her to succeed. It’s a testament to their commitment to the program and to Megan’s ability to forge strong relationships and demonstrate the value of her work. It was awesome!
