Mark Petersen, A Legacy of Light

Mentors International is mourning the loss of our beloved CEO and President, Mark L. Petersen. After a brave battle with cancer, he was called back home to his Father in Heaven.

As the Mentors International Staff and Board, we are very grateful that we have been mentored, inspired, taught, and led by such a great man. Mark has passed on his light and torch to us and we will carry on his legacy of shining our light for others, and helping to give hope to the world’s poor.

The Mentors Difference

Many organizations provide micro finance and training to the poor. Mentors International is different from these organizations not because of what we do, but how we do it. The importance of how we serve shows up in our results.
