Welcome to National Mentoring Month 2016! Each January we use this national spotlight on the importance of building effective mentoring relationships to highlight mentoring practices, programs, and relationships here on the Wake Forest campus. It is an opportunity to reflect on those relationships that are so important to our growth and development, to express appreciation for those who are invested in our lives, and to renew our commitment to one another and to this community.

This January, we are focusing on mentoring for life after college as part of our month-long celebration. While we know that mentoring relationships add tremendous value to the well-being and success of students during their four years at Wake Forest, we also believe that mentoring plays a large role in making a successful transition from senior year to life post-graduation. Knowing how to build supportive relationships, create and take ownership of your goals and successes, and to reflect on your growth experiences for future application are critical skills for navigating life after college.

This space provides both mentees and mentors with information, advice, and resources for building and engaging in mentoring relationships to support the college to “real world” transition. Click on the following to learn more:
