A student's life involves some major transitions, whether it's a K-12 student moving on to higher education, or a college student entering the workforce.  In these times of transition, there are students who could benefit from the additional support of a mentor or role model to improve their scholastic abilities, teach life skills, and develop their character.

There is a large group of aging adults who are nearing retirement but who do not yet feel ready to retire.  These near-retirees have the motivation to stay involved in the community, as well as the life experience and expertise to mentor students as they transition to higher education or the workplace.



Deliverables

We want to know whether or not students would be interested in being mentored by someone much older / nearing retirement.  Specifically, please answer the following:

  1. How would K-12 students feel about participating in a mentorship program with near-retirees as they transition to higher education?  Explain your reasoning.  
  2. How would a college student feel about participating in a mentorship program with near-retirees as they transition to the workplace?   Explain your reasoning.
  3. Which age group (K-12, college, or a subset of these larger groups) do you think would be most receptive to these mentors?  What age group would be most willing or eager to participate?
  4. What would be most appealing to you about being mentored by an individual nearing retirement?  What would be least appealing?
