Why I Mentor

Giving Back Through AT&T's Aspire Mentoring Academy

By Xavier Williams

People have always invested in me, so I made a personal commitment long ago to give back as much as I could.

That’s why for more than a decade I have mentored young people, as people have mentored me, through my church, fraternity and workplace.

And this investment of time and commitment has paid off, not just for the students that I have mentored, but for the community and for me personally.

With National Mentoring Month coming to a close, it’s a great time to consider mentoring.
