The Power of Mentoring: Shawnita’s and Ebony’s Story
Posted on January 30, 2013 by NCWD
In celebration of National Mentoring Month, the Institute for Educational Leadership’s Center for Workforce Development wanted to share some personal stories that show the power of mentoring in youth’s lives. I interviewed a mentor and mentee from the Ready to Achieve Mentoring Program (RAMP) at Humanim in Baltimore, Maryland. Ebony is a juvenile probation officer who is starting her fourth year as a RAMP mentor. Her mentee, Shawnita, is a senior at Mergenthaler Vocational-Technical Senior High School.
How did you both get involved in RAMP?
