What Drives Mentoring:

  • Discovery
  • Friendship
  • Excitement 
  • Ambition
When I was a kid, I longed for someone to help me navigate the world that would be close enough to empathize with me, but far enough apart to be able to give me guidance. What I wanted was a mentor, and I believe that mentoring children between the ages of 8 and 16 has a big role to play for future generations to reach their potential. 

My idea of the perfect mentor for our kids has the experience of a 30-year-old and the enthusiasm of a 10-year-old in the body of a 25-year-old. 

The mentor has to be able to get right down to the mentee's level to think like a peer in order to communicate all the wisdom and experience that they have gained over the years. A mentor's goal is to elicit the mentee's vision for his or her life, help them process it, then make it come true.
