We consider applications on an as needed basis, although we do not anticipate a substantial need until the 2016-2017 academic year.
Applications for the 2016-2017 academic year will be accepted through March 2016. Our team will review your application and schedule a brief phone interview to assess your candidacy. Upon initial acceptance to the program, all candidates must complete and pass a background check, after which we will pair new mentors with their mentees.
