Mentoring and the Mythological Need for the Other

Kwame Scruggs, Founder and Director, Alchemy, Akron, Ohio

Mentoring will be viewed through the lens of myth. Common themes in myth are often common themes in life. We find in myth that the hero/heroine never accomplishes their tasks alone; they always have some sort of assistance from a guide, a mentor. Using the mentoring program “Alchemy” as an example, we will explore some mythological traits of the mentor/mentee relationship through myth.
