Connecting You With Our Students

We invite you to participate in experiences alongside students. We match the hobbies and interests students indicated on their applications with yours. Examples of student interests include agriculture, music, cooking, sports, engineering, real estate, and many more. Interactions between students and mentors occur in open public spaces, allowing students to connect with mentors in a manner that is comfortable and safe.

Sound amazing? We would love for you to mentor our students.
