Each year mentees complete a year-end survey about the experience of having a mentor. One question asks, "What do you like most about spending time with your mentor?"
Here are a few things students said in their 2012 survey:
I have someone to express my feelings and just be me and have fun
He is like my dad, he spends time with me and I love him. He does everything I want to do.
I like seeing her smile!!!
He makes me laugh a lot
She is nice, funny, kind, awesome, generous, smart
He is a person that looks forward to learning more about me.
We always have a lot of fun together! It's always the reason I actually enjoy Monday's.
He teaches me things that I would never be able to learn from other people I know.
She makes sure that what she wants to do is ok with me during our time. She also acknowledges what I want to do and listens to me.
When we talk during air hockey
I like talking to my mentor about my problems
I like how I know I can come to her anytime I needed to without being judged and I would know she wouldn't tell anybody.
She's really fun to talk to and nice and doesn't judge me. She also gives GREAT advice.
Knowing he's there for me and we have a lot in common so he understands my questions and concerns.
We talk… LOVE talking!
My mentor is a funny guy, he tells me the truth and he gets along well with me. He is a nice guy and he believes in me.
