Five types of mentors you must have in your life

Mentors definitely come in all shapes, sizes, and forms. It is good to utilize your mentors for helping you grow as an individual. They do not need the official title of being your mentor but can be found in your friends, family, and workplace. They are the ones that help you find out your own capabilities. They are the ones that shine a light during those dark days, giving you hope and vision to persevere and move on.

Using Alumni as mentors proved to ease mentees into that initial step towards forming a relationship.
