The MENTOR Network

Barbara Donaldson Mentor, Massachusetts MENTOR

As a Mentor coach and host of the longest-running Mentor support group in the Hyannis program, Barbara Donaldson has become a dear friend to many of her fellow Mentors and an essential part of the program’s success.

She is there to educate new Mentors, offer a helping hand when needed, and share her selfless support and strength in tough times. It’s hard to say how many graduations she is responsible for, how many relationships she has formed, or how much confidence she has built, but the proof is in her home, community and throughout MENTOR.

Watch Barbara accept her 2012 Ripple of Hope Award and be honored alongside her fellow winners in St. Paul at the Minnesota History Center.
