MentorCity is the brainchild of Shawn Mintz. Working as a communications manager in the non-profit sector led him to implement a mentoring initiative. It was a simple idea that had significant positive outcomes. Following each mentoring event, the mentors left feeling great about paying-it-forward and the Mentees were inspired to take on the world. In 2011, that initiative became the foundation of MentorCity, a place where people can discover that positive organizational outcomes are the result of positive individual outcomes. And to provide the tools, confidence and know-how to make that happen.
