"Growing up, ‘leave it better than you found it’ was a common phrase in my household. My parents always encouraged me to give back where you can.
As a life mentor for Road to Hire, I get to do exactly that. Sometimes you are a friend and share a listening ear. Other times, you are someone who shares feedback that may be tough, but ultimately will better the individual in the long term. You are a cheerleader, ally, advocate and so much more.
Seeing my mentees successfully graduate the program and get long-lasting jobs has been such a meaningful experience. It feels like I’ve gained two friends along the way and I couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunity.”
