Mentor/Mentee Discussions

  • How can I utilize my experience at SOLES to impact my professional options?
  • How can I set myself up for academic and career success?

  • How do I balance the demands of family, school, and work?

The Mentee Experience

  • “My mentor has been an amazing help in my life, he makes me realize and see things more clearly. Sometimes it's in front of your face but can't see until someone puts into words for you.” – Mentee

The Mentor Experience

  • “I'm volunteering to mentor because I've been fortunate enough to have mentors who guided me throughout my academic and professional careers & I feel like I am finally able to give back. “ – Mentor
  • “I am volunteering because I believe I could had achieved my goals at a faster rate if I had someone who could had given me their perspective of life five years ahead of me. I hope to bring valuable advice to my mentees.” – Mentor
