Mentor of the year
RISE Mentor of the Year is a prestigious award which recognizes the hard work and time commitment put in by those who mentor our RISE community. Whether part of our program or on their own, mentees nominate their mentors and we have the difficult job to narrow it down to just one recipient.
A mentor is a counselor who helps develop self-awareness, character, skills, goal development and fulfillment. They provide guidance and accountability. Characteristics of a good mentor include: self-awareness, good listener, humility, committed, personal investment in mentee, patience, and persistence.
