Mentors attend our programs as coaches and facilitators of the learning experience for our students. Mentors work closely with students as they navigate and work through projects, and offer guidance as needed based on their expertise, knowledge, and experience. During our programs, mentors are assigned to student groups to assist them in navigating the projects and meeting their deadlines, acting as both a guide and a facilitator through the process.
