A survey conducted by The Commonwealth Fund found:

  • Three-quarters of the mentors surveyed reported that their experience had had a “very positive” effect on their lives. They felt that mentoring provided a break from their busy professional lives and a chance to give something back.
  • Eighty-three percent indicated that they learned or gained something personally from their mentoring experience, including feeling that they were a better person, increased patience, friendship, a feeling of effectiveness and a chance to acquire skills.
