At church, seven years ago, Gary Tillery, listened to a presentation about 4C's mentoring program. Gary, retired after 26 years as a supervisor at Boeing, decided he'd give mentoring a try.
He attended 4C's mentor training program. "The training program was very thorough as they went over the dos and don'ts of being a mentor," says Gary.
After the training, Gary waited two nerve-racking months before being assigned a mentee
Gary laughs when he says, "during the waiting period, I actually became very anxious about the commitment. I thought that maybe when they called me with a mentee, I just wouldn't answer the phone."
4C finally called to let Gary know that they had found a good mentee match for Gary.
