Our Beliefs and Practices
A commitment to and focus on doing whatever it takes to make sure that every student, young adult or job seeker is successful.
Rather than a top-down relationship, mentor and mentee work as partners, building trust and growing professionally in ways they could not alone.
Every mentor comes to the profession with a commitment to be effective. They bring their own educational experiences and understandings, from which they continuously learn and grow. This same belief applies to all mentees.
A mindset of curiosity – plot a course, teach it, analyze the impact and adapt to challenges
