Story from a mentor – A rewarding and enlightening experience

Enjoy this account from a dedicated icouldbe mentor:

I suggest to many of my mentees that if they wish to ask questions or talk about challenges that have nothing to do with the structured material, I am available to provide insights in areas where they may be hesitant to talk with teachers and family. Some mentees take me up on this and a few have poured out their life to me. I have tried to be truthful and helpful within the guidelines I have set for myself as far as these exchanges are concerned.  I have found one of the best ways to establish a relationship is to tell the mentees about the kinds of problems I had when I was their age and how some of these problems were solved and how some of them were not.

I had one mentee in particular that I grew very close to. She was one of the brightest young minds I have had the pleasure of communicating with and not just in the icouldbe program. Unfortunately she has moved to a different part of the country and her school does not participate in icouldbe but she still goes online occasionally and communicates with me via your email program. I am not comfortable sharing the details of our many exchanges but I can say it was a rewarding and enlightening experience for me and hopefully I was of help and value to her–at least that is what she has told me.
