Mentor's thoughts from the Custom Rain Barrel Business Project
“Lead to Succeed was a wonderful opportunity for me because it gave me a chance to become a mentor and a teacher and it has been a great way for me to get a feel for the Milwaukee Public School system, as I will soon be placed in a school to shadow teachers around Milwaukee to learn how to interact and become an effective leader among Milwaukee’s new generations of learners. I feel that that future experience will only be easier because of the work I did with Lead to Succeed as a mentor.
Not only did I benefit from the experience I got as a mentor, but I also learned many things about the Milwaukee water system that I didn’t know. I never realized the extent that individuals like Cora Lee Palmer, from MMSD, did to help raise awareness of the water problem that we are all facing.”
