We provide ongoing training and support for mentors.

Our team provides:

  • Pre-match training

WE MATCH STUDENTS AND MENTORS WITH COMMON INTERESTS, BACKGROUNDS, AND EXPERIENCES.

  • Students form more meaningful connections with mentors who share interests and experiences, increasing their chances of success.

  • Mentors stay more engaged and motivated to help students who have similar backgrounds.
