Mentors' Personal Growth and Development in a College Access Mentorship Program
Haber-Curran, Paige; Everman, Daphne; Martinez, Melissa A.
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v25 n4 p485-503 2017
As the prevalence of mentoring programs in higher education institutions continues to grow, there remains little research on the growth and development that comes from serving as a mentor. In this phenomenological study, the researchers examined college students' personal and educational gains through serving as mentors to high school students in a work-study mentoring program for increasing college access. Drawing on interviews with 14 mentors and other program staff, the researchers examined the following research question: In what ways did student mentors in the G-Force Mentoring Program grow and develop as a result of their mentor experience? Findings included mentor growth in three key categories: (a) self-development and awareness, (b) skill development, and (c) career development. Implications for practice and future research are offered.
