Our mentors dedicate their lives to helping and teaching.
Our mentors primarily enter our program through our relationship with local business partners (employee interest). They are also coached / mentored, which helps them serve a young adult with great confidence. This equips them to have healthy relationships at home and work.
I found myself interested in the mentoring program with Mentoring
Partners of Cincinnati because I love people and I enjoy helping,
coaching people, and watching them find their passion in their
work and in life. My experience with my mentee helped us both
grow as men!
I was inspired to mentor after being asked and having an interest in the life of my student. My hope is that she aims to reach her full potential with the encouragement from others in her life. Going into a mentoring role, I thought "How can I bless someone?" "Am I adequate?" Then I realized that I, too, will receive a huge blessing. The Lord equips those who are willing, and makes them able!
Mentors are what changed my life and continue
to be vital for my growth in every season. It is a joy
to continue building friendships with young men that
help us both accomplish growth in our lives.
My inspiration for serving as a mentor comes from
a desire to help young men grow into the mature
and responsible adults that our society needs them
to be. If you like the feeling of making a difference
in the life of a young person, then becoming a
mentor might be for you!
I am an Associate Professor at Miami University, teaching
violin in the Music Department. I have personally
experienced the power of a good mentor, and sometimes conversely, the power of a bad mentor. It challenges
me to think purposefully about how I interact with
young people who are in their formative years.
I would encourage anyone with a heart for the next
generation, to seriously investing in this
I was raised by my great-grandparents. I have benefitted from
many great mentors and am honored to be able to pass
along that which was first given to me.
Another passion is racial reconciliation as he continues
to facilitate and participate in “Undivided” sessions at
work and his church, Crossroads.
