2019 Walk of Fame Winners: Mentors Matter
Every year, ACCES Employment recognizes organizations and individuals who have made a significant impact to drive the ACCES mission forward. This year, through our Walk of Fame Awards, ACCES is pleased to profile the amazing success we have achieved in creating and facilitating important mentoring opportunities for our jobseekers using different mentoring models. These awards recognize mentors who have been exceptional in contributing their valuable time and expertise to the success of our clients.
Over 1700 mentors contributed their time through different types of mentoring at ACCES this past year. This includes ACCES’s Speed Mentoring program – both for English-speaking and bilingual clients, guest speaking and in-program mentoring, one-to-one mentoring through the TRIEC Mentoring partnership program at ACCES, and informal networking through The Connector Program.
Mentoring, in all forms, has contributed greatly to the success of our jobseekers. The advice, strategies, networking connections and introductions that jobseekers receive through mentoring provide invaluable support and we are grateful to all of our mentors and volunteers for their time and effort.
