Promoting Educational Excellence through Relationships.

In an effort to support students during their educational journey, Thomas Nelson has a mentoring program that matches successful and experienced students with new students.

What is a Mentor?

A mentor is:

  • A knowledgeable and experienced guide who teaches (and learns) through a commitment to the mutual growth of both mentee and mentor.
  • A caring, thoughtful, and humane facilitator who provides access to people, places, experiences, and resources outside the mentee’s routine environment.
  • A role model who exemplifies in word and deed what it means to be an ethical, responsible, and compassionate human being.
  • A trusted ally, or advocate, who works with (not for) the mentee and on behalf of the mentee’s best interests and goals.
