Google Mentor Reflections

I've been a mentor with ITP since 2005 working with more than 100 young people on their projects. Many of the projects are researching careers and others are a variety of subjects. I have collaborated on so many different subjects and careers, I just love it! The commitment and enthusiasm of the students is infectious. Telementor allows me to provide support to students in many social settings, broadening my knowledge of their environments. I find that I develop a rapport and relationship with these young people through the messages and am deeply touched by their appreciation at the end of the project. It really is me who gained from the time spent with each of them.

ITP is fortunate to have top professionals from 22 countries participating as mentors. Many of these mentors have been participating for years. Bev Cross is one of those mentors. She knocks the ball out of the park with every student she mentors and typically mentors four or five students at a time. It is humbling and inspiring to consider the impact she has had mentoring over 100 students. Check out the latest blog article about Bev Cross.Thank you Bev!

For youth,
