KCC Mentoring Program
A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself. Oprah Winfrey
Show me a successful individual and I’ll show you someone who had real positive influences in his or her life. I don’t care what you do for a living—if you do it well I’m sure there was someone cheering you on or showing the way. A mentor. Denzel Washington
Most of us can trace at least a part of our success to people who have served as mentors in our lives. Mentoring often develops organically, but many of our students have lives that do not allow the space for them to connect with faculty and staff at Kingsborough. The goal of the KCC Mentoring Program is to provide students the opportunity to connect with faculty and staff who can serve as mentors.
The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves. Steven Spielberg
The program offers professional development to faculty and staff around mentoring students, invites students to mentoring, matches interested students to mentors, and provides support for mentoring relationships.
The program is coordinated by Janine Graziano, Director of KCTL. If you’d like more information, please contact Janine at Janine.Graziano@kbcc.cuny.edu.
