The mentor-mentee relationship is one of a long series of relationships that are important in human development; it can be compared to other such relationships like those between parents and children (e.g., learning about life), friends/partners/mates (e.g., sharing experiences) or teachers and students.

Sometimes mentors are paid professionals who serve a particular function while other times they may be volunteers with expertise in certain fields that can help guide their mentees' development. Mentors often have extensive experience of their own which they share with those seeking assistance; this is an important part of what makes them effective guides for others on a personal level.
