Our mentors support our students and their families throughout the academic quarter by providing encouragement, resources, and guidance as they progress towards graduation. By volunteering for this position, you will be offering our students the best preparation for life after graduation — giving them a much needed boost for today’s competitive job market. You can read about our current students and their successes here.
