Young adults just like you are benefiting from mentoring. Here is what they say!

"My mentors helped guide me, they helped create this irreplaceable experience that is now the foundation to my career growth, and they also helped me paint this big picture in my life which to me I think is priceless. My mentors also helped change the way I carry myself."

Ipellie FooYouth Indigenous Leader

"My mentor always told me to never let a good question go to waste. That notion really impacted me. My mentor also told me if you focus on problems, you will get problems, and if you focus on solutions, you will get solutions. This was a huge realization for me and it drove me to be more productive."
