Become a Mentor
Mentors are the primary resource for our mentees. Mentors provide insight and experience that our mentees would not have otherwise received.
Mentors provide a minimum of 10 hours in a month of availability for mentees. We encourage our mentors and mentees to meet virtually and in person.
Mentors provide individualized guidance and feedback about the different phases of the journey to Barred process. Mentors may volunteer to help up to 3 mentees at a time.
