One-to-one mentoring programs have a long-lasting impact on mentees’ lives by fostering positive relationships and expanding their social networks. The mentor-mentee bond often extends beyond the program duration, with many mentees maintaining contact with their mentors well into adulthood. These connections provide mentees with ongoing guidance, advice, and opportunities for personal and professional growth. Mentees also benefit from the mentor’s professional network, gaining access to new resources, career insights, and potential job opportunities.
