- #ThankYourMentor on Jan. 19
Never got around to thanking a mentor who helped you get where you are today? Now’s your chance. Share stories of the mentors who had an impact on your life for #ThankYoutMentor Day on Jan. 19.
Here’s what America’s Promise CEO John Gomperts had to say about his mentor, Harris Wofford, last year:
“Harris isn’t the kind of mentor you might expect. He doesn’t dispense advice. Instead, he befriends, tells stories, shares ideas, and tries to live up to his ideals and beliefs,” Gomperts wrote.
“Harris never tells me (or anyone) what to do. But he sets a strong example, he shows the way through his actions, and he invites and encourages people like me to act in the same way. Thank you, Harris, for showing me the kind of man I want to be.”
