Mentor

The core of our program are the community members who work with students on current, environmentally critical projects. Our goal is to keep a one mentor to two students ratio.

What We’re Looking For

  • 01

    You.
    Anyone, regardless of experience, age or background is invited to join our community.

  • 02

    Family.
    We become very close and build trust working along side each other for the 30 weeks of the program.

  • 03

    Problem-solvers.
    The path to success and completion may have many routes. Thinking outside the box is the foundation we stand on.

  • 04

    The program grows not only in size but also in quality based on what we have all learned as a family. Schedule a visit to learn more about mentoring.
