Mentoring Stories

Many people have acted as mentors or have been mentored. However, in many cases, neither the person acting as a mentor or the person being mentored may realize or recognize that mentoring has occurred. Sometimes people involved in mentoring do not actually use the term mentoring and instead describe their relationship as influential, impactful or learning-oriented. Such informal mentoring occurs quite frequently and it is probably wide-spread throughout the world.

We have solicited stories about mentoring from a variety of individuals. The stories are personal and we have edited some aspects of the story to protect the privacy or identity of the persons involved. The stories provided here are intended to act as examples of the various outcomes associated with mentoring.
