Recognizing that the nurturing of relationships and development of skills is key to the retention of youth professionals, we are continuing with our Mentor Program for a fourth season.

This program matches educators who are new to the field (1–5 years) with a seasoned mentor. Together, they work through challenges, brainstorm ideas and create plans to further their growth and learning. Both mentor and mentee benefit from this relationship and often continue the connection beyond the 6-month commitment.

The Mentor Program Launch will be on Tuesday, September 2 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm If you are interested in either being a mentor or mentee, please complete the form below.
