Meet the Mentors: Carlton Anderson

 

Name: Carlton Anderson

How long have you been a TeamMates Mentor? Since 2016

What school do you mentor at? Started at Bennington Elementary, then at Bennington Middle School, and this fall will be at Bennington High School!

What is your favorite part about being a TeamMates Mentor? Being part of a far-reaching organization that is impacting the lives of many students. Also knowing that the impact I have with my mentee is not measured in any individual meeting, but in the cumulative faithfulness and consistency over the long-term.

What is one thing you wish others knew about the program? That the time commitment required is only a half-hour about 25 times each year. And “being there” is the most important thing you can give.

Why should someone apply to join the Bennington TeamMates community? Because students are looking for someone who cares about them.
