Very often, mentoring is left to the luck of the draw or chance. It is often assumed that mentors and mentees know how to approach and work with each other, but that isn't always the case. Mentees often wonder what they can ask for and mentors often wonder, “what is in this for me?” Our intention is to help the group get to know one another and create relationships that are reciprocal in nature to ensure that there is something in it for all participants in this mentoring culture. Get your business cards ready and be prepared to ask for the skills you seek to develop and prepared to offer skills that can help others.
