Mentoring is a partnership between two individuals, the mentor and the mentee. Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful effects on students, employees, entrepreneurs, and future leaders.
Participants of the VSUW Pathways to Economic Opportunity program will be matched with a mentor. A representative from CPLC Workforce Solutions will reach out to participants to begin this relationship and will provide guidance on how to begin the mentorship journey.
Mentorship can be done virtually or in-person. Once mentees begin communicating with their mentors, together they can determine the frequency and format of scheduled meetings. The suggested meeting schedule is 1 to 2 hours a month.
