Have you ever considered mentoring? Whether it’s a young person trying to get ahead in school or someone a little older looking for direction when it comes to choosing the best roads to travel in life, there are hundreds of mentoring opportunities available at any given time.
One mentoring program that recently came to my attention is Mentoring Matters: The Priscilla Project of Buffalo. This mentoring program is a partnership between caring people who are familiar (instructed or practiced) with the ropes of birthing and motherhood, and pregnant refugee women here in Buffalo. The partnership is more than simply teaching the ins and outs of navigating a pregnancy, it’s also about striking up a friendship with those who, for all intents and purposes, are worlds away when it comes traditions and customs.
To get a better sense of a relationship of this sort, listen to what mentor Jillian and her mentee Indra (part of the Priscilla Project of Buffalo), have to say about each other in this heartwarming video.
If you like what you hear, consider getting involved in a mentoring role. If you don’t have the time, then you can still help…
