Goals of the Mentoring Program
Commitment – Each mentor/mentee pair should connect at least once, in person, by phone, on Skype, etc. The subsequent relationship beyond the initial conversation will of course vary and pairs will be committed to the terms that they agree upon together. That is to say, based on the connection you make, matches can meet one time only, 2-4 times, or meet on a regular basis for an agreed upon period of time.
How it works – Both mentors and mentees are asked to fill out a short application, available online. Participants will be matched based on common interests, professional field, and experiences. After you are notified of your match, you and your mentor can be in touch to arrange the first conversation/meeting.

*Note: We will do our best to match every person who signs up. We want to make sure every match is worthwhile, so in the event that we cannot find you a good match, you will be placed in a pool for future matches. Thank you for your understanding.*
