Connection

G2W is a family. Our circles harbor connection between our mentors and mentees. We encourage our mentors to be just as vulnerable as our mentees to model the behavior we wish to see in the circles.

THE ROLE OF A MENTOR

Motivator
Teacher
Confidant 

A mentor at G2W has four roles when working with a mentee: a motivator, teacher, confidant, and coach

A motivator encourages honest self-reflection and autonomy in decision making.

A teacher models good behavior.

A confidant actively listens, guides and advocates.

A coach helps identify goals and supports a mentee in achieving them.
