Mentors serve as friends, role models and consistent sources of support by helping their mentee develop and reach their personal, academic and career goals. Most importantly, they build a fun, trusting, one-on-one relationship with their mentee. This is an opportunity to make a positive difference in the life of a young adult. Building a relationship with their mentee can be a slow process and mentors should be open to guidance, support, and creativity as they establish their relationship.

Mentor Requirements:
Meet with their mentee a minimum of one time per month face to face or via phone. It is recommended the mentor maintain weekly contact via phone call, text or email as necessary.
Mentors to make a one-year-at-a-time commitment. This time frame is subjected to change based on the needs.
