The goal of the Mentor/Mentee program is to create an intimate relationship between one older member and a new member who might be interested in learning more about the club. Through this program there is an opportunity for new and old members
to grow together as leaders. The Mentor/Mentee Program helps build a relationship between two individuals, and it acts as a bridge to create a better connection between the different generations of Circle K members by giving multiple opportunities
to bond at social events and committee meetings.

"The mentor-mentee program helped me branch out and grow in Circle K. As a first year, I found it easy to be active within my family, but I didn't have the courage to go out to large service events or club-wide events. The mentor-mentee
program introduced me to members I hadn't met before and gave me the extra push I needed to become more involved in all aspects of Circle K. Having a mentor to support me has also encouraged me to take more initiative and leadership
roles. Now that I have a mentee this year, I get to share my passion and dedication for Circle K with her and encourage her to become more involved."
-Joyce Wang (Past Mentee, Current Mentor)
"I am really grateful for the Mentor Mentee Program because it gave me a chance to meet someone new in the club and an opportunity to share my experiences. When I got to meet my two amazing mentees, Joseph and Teresa, I was super happy
because they reminded me of why I love Circle K so much. They never fail to make me laugh and I can't wait to go on more adventures with them!"
-Nancy Nguyen (Mentor)
"The mentor and mentee system was a great way for me to find a more personal connection with someone outside my family. I had fun connecting with my mentor Stacey whether it was asking her about advice on life or going to food adventures
-Kevin Carizon (Mentee)
"A mentor who is there for me even when she's always busy. One who inspires me to do better and work harder. The mentor who constantly reminds me about self-care; I am nothing more but grateful for my mentor Joyce."
-Jenny Truong (Mentee)
"Since getting paired with my mentee, i've never felt more of that "big brother" role ever before in my life. My mentee has given me a chance to be more open minded about the chances that I take. It's true what they say: you learn more
from your students, than your students who learn from you."
