Program Goals

Facilitate the matching of Mentors and Mentees throughout the Mentorship Program and collect feedback on your mentorship relationships.

Program Duration

The program does not put a time limit on the duration of the mentorship. However, a minimum commitment of 3 months is required for participation from Mentors and Mentees. The length of the relationship can be established between Mentors and Mentees at the outset or throughout the partnership.

Program Participation Guidelines

Overall Participation:

  • Be open to ask questions and understand your mentor’s experiences
  • Trust that this is a process that involves commitment
