Mentor Blog: Chances are, life is pretty good, right?
If you have chosen to become a DC Project Connect mentor, chances are you've lived through some stuff and you have a bit of wisdom to share. We appreciate you. We only chose those individuals who are put in our path through divine order.
Even with all of your success, if you live long enough on this planet, you are likely to experience a downfall, disappointment, get stood-up, or kicked to the curb. The women who you will mentor have experienced each of these scenarios--ten-fold. However, you are the one person who will be in her corner, right? We need role-models who can demonstrate time-management techniques, prioritizing life situations, but the best thing is that you do not have to solve problems. We just need you to be you. It is good to have someone to listen to you when life seems a bit out of kilter or especially when things are really flowing. That's where you come in. Are you ready? Let's do this.

Your Greatest Self.
Your greatest self may be discovered as you give part of yourself to others. Be a great mentor to others.
During group mentoring discussions, participants can share information on a pre-selected topic based on individual experiences and expertise in a small, group discussion format. Each discussion is led by a facilitator (usually one of the mentor participants) with the support of a team-leader or Subject Matter Expert (SME). Group discussion allows knowledge sharing for the participants.
We need your talent and skills to conduct workshops during our mentoring sessions. Are you artistic? Teach Life Coaching activities? Let us know!

The mentor program provided me with an opportunity to engage with someone who expressed interest in me. I just came back home after being incarcerated for 12 years. I did have a substance abuse problem, but I have been clean for a long while, and I feel like that part of my life is over. Looking forward, I envision standing before crowds as a motivational speaker. I believe that I can use my own life experiences to help others… This mentor program has really benefitted me. ~Mentee
