If you are at least 21 years old and are willing to commit just 2 hours a week for a year, you are strongly encouraged to apply.

Mentoring can be fun and flexible. Once you’ve been matched, you develop a schedule and plan activities that work best for you and your mentee. During the pandemic, all our your interactions will be virtual. We will provide you with ideas and support to help you find the best way to connect with your mentee.
