Why Today's Generation Still Needs Mentors



Does our generation still need mentor?

In a digital age dominated by screens, it's easy to think the internet and social media are our mentors. While they offer immense knowledge, nothing replaces the personal touch of a mentor. Right?


Being a driven woman, I've achieved milestones, yet I owe a significant part of my success to the guidance and insights from my mentors. They see what we might overlook, offering perspectives that shape our journey.


The increasing focus on individualism and self-interest in contemporary society, may lead to a perceived rise in selfish behaviors. Additionally, societal changes, economic pressures, and cultural shifts can also influence how people prioritize their own needs over collective goals.


Are Screens the New Mentors? Exploring the Role of Internet and Social Media in Guidance and Growth.

Regarding mentors, while some may argue that the need for mentors is diminishing due to the abundance of information available online, the role of mentors remains crucial. Mentors offer personalized guidance, wisdom, and support that go beyond what can be gleaned from general resources. They provide real life insights, human connections, and tailored advice that can significantly impact personal and professional growth. Therefore, even in an age of information overload, mentors continue to play a vital role in nurturing talent and fostering success.


As you reflect on the topic shared, consider which mentorship program aligns best with your goals.


  • Make a deliberate list of your aspirations.

  • Research programs that resonate with your vision.

  • Take a moment to disconnect from the digital realm.

  • Recognize the potential mentors in your immediate surroundings.


Your mentor might be right there, quietly watching over you, ready to offer wisdom and support without you even noticing. Take a moment to tune in to the signals of mentorship that exist around you, their presence and influence can be profoundly transformative.

And remember consistency is key!
