What is the role of a mentor?

A mentor is an individual who assists and guides another’s development. Their role entails guidance that is not done for personal gain or praise to increase one’s own reputation. A mentor can act as a role model, guide, tutor, coach, or confidante. Mentors enrich lives by sharing their valuable experiences, by listening and giving sound advice, and through their own life examples.
