Why I Became a Mentor:
"The mission of the social work profession is rooted in a set of core values that are the 'foundation of social work's unique purpose and perspective'. These values include service to others, acknowledgement of the dignity and worth of each person, enhancement of competence, and the importance of human relationships. When I was approached about being a mentor for the MCH Leadership Academy the only answer to give was 'yes'. In being a mentor, I am able to demonstrate these core values and guide social workers as they enter the arena of leadership and program development. Perhaps, even more amazing and quite unexpected, however, are the gifts that I have been given by listening to their stories, challenges and triumphs as they strive to become the leaders of tomorrow. This experience as a mentor is a true honor!
