ABSTRACT
The author discusses the concepts surrounding informal mentoring. She describes peer mentoring as two equal persons engaged in a mentoring relationship. She says that group mentoring involves a group composed of peers with similar learning interest or needs which take responsibility for managing the learning process for each member. The author also examines the model of personal board of directors wherein a mentee seeks out and recruits multiple mentors.
