“In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.”
Mentor City is the brainchild of Shawn Mintz. Working as a communications manager in the non-profit sector led him to implement a mentoring initiative. It was a simple idea that had significant positive outcomes. Following each mentoring event, the mentors left feeling great about paying-it-forward and the Mentees were inspired to take on the world. In 2011, that initiative became the foundation of MentorCity, a place where people can discover that positive organizational outcomes are the result of positive individual outcomes. And to provide the tools, confidence and know-how to make that happen.
We believe that Everyone experiences times in their life and career when they can benefit from the guidance and support of a mentoring relationship, be it peer-to-peer or new to established. They help us through. They help us grow. And they help us to contribute and feel connected to something greater. That is at the heart of MentorCity.
So we have also developed MentorCity For Everyone, a free online registry for mentors who are looking to make a difference and Mentees who are looking for help. Because inclusivity is key. And that’s the way to build a better city, and a better world.
