I’ve been actively involved in the mentoring program with the HRPA York Region chapter for over 4 years now. Both as a Mentee and Mentor, and recently as a volunteer with the Mentoring Committee. I am a strong believer in the program, and mentoring in general. However I realize that some feel the term “mentoring” is overused or misused. I have to agree in some cases.
That being said, I know that when a properly structured mentoring relationship is created, there are benefits for both parties.
