You Already Have it in You to Be A Mentor

It is extremely empowering to impact a student’s life by mentoring at Computers4Kids. What makes mentoring appealing is that once you become involved, the involvement becomes addictive – you crave increased participation and learning.  Mastering new software is only a small portion of the benefits derived.  I learned to communicate with these students, and I learned to understand their niche in this challenging world.

The most rewarding experience was witnessing my first student watch the final version of his movie project. He had a smile on his face large enough to have saved the world from sadness for a just a moment. He was so proud! At graduation his entire family was proud for and of him, extremely appreciative of my mentoring efforts, and the support of C4K staff.
