In the first Perennials episode of 2019, I'm talking to my former college classmate Andrew Binger about mentorship--what it is, why it matters, and how it can change people's lives.
Andrew is an educator, actor and mentor working primarily in the city of Newark, New Jersey. He teaches history at the Newark Boys Chorus School and serves as the Artistic Director of the Yendor Theatre Company, which seeks to develop and produce plays by underserved playwrights, including writers of color, women, and writers from the LGBTQ community. Andrew credits much of his success to his former professor and mentor Rodney Gilbert. He now considers mentoring young people some of the most meaningful work he does.
