Understanding Mentor Partnerships

Key Participants Involved in the Mentor Partnership

NEW: Lead Mentor

This year, MPFS is looking for 10 Lead Mentors to provide additional support for our mentor-protégé partnerships. Each Lead Mentor will be responsible for supporting a cohort of ten mentor-protégé pairs through the entirety of Fall quarter. Lead Mentors will provide critical support by maintaining regular contact with their cohort MPFS Mentors, reviewing bi-weekly check-ins and reporting any student health and wellness concerns to the Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center Student Leadership Adviser. Lead Mentors will be recognized at the end of the quarter with a celebration dinner, certificate and small stipend.
