Why Mentor?

If you’ve been fortunate enough to have had a great mentor in your life, you already know the answer. Mentors can make all the difference in the world to their mentees. They provide guidance and insights that give mentees perspective both personally and professionally. Most importantly, mentors can help mentees realize where they want to go in their careers — and even help them get there.

With NORTHFORCE’s Mentor Connection, each participating student is matched with a locally established professional who then introduces them to the Twin Ports business community while preparing them for a job within their shared field of interest. Through Mentor Connection, Mentors have the opportunity to:

  • Provide guidance and grow as an individual
  • Elevate your leadership skills
  • Give back to your community
  • Build your professional network
  • Develop lifelong relationships

Organizations that partner with Mentor Connection also stand to benefit greatly. Participating organizations have the opportunity to:

  • Connect with students beyond the snapshot of a resume
  • Meet with your industry’s most eager minds and emerging talents
  • Support NORTHFORCE’s efforts to retain students in our community
  • Be the first to connect with and recruit these engaged students
