The MENTOR Project

is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was created to shed light on the benefits of mentoring. We know the benefits mentees receive from finding a good mentor. But did you know that mentors receive as many and often more benefits from mentoring than their mentees? Mentors report feelings of fulfillment, legacy, meaning productivity, and value. They feel connected to the world in a deeper way than before they became a mentor.

What do we do with the best and brightest experts?

Have them MENTOR the next generation!

Many of the most accomplished, brightest experts in every field of work have a desire to give back to the next generation, but they don't know how to get involved. We believe in the value of mentorship, and passing the torch of knowledge, information, innovation, culture, values and inspiration to the next generation. Not only do we change ourselves when we mentor, but we change the lives of our mentees, and we change the world. Every mentor makes a permanent impression, and the legacy lives on.

We are wasting our most precious natural resource.

It isn’t coal oil or gas. It is people!

What if growing older wasn’t something to fear? And what if the phrase “Tis Better to Give than to Receive” were actually true? This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
