Our Hope

We hope you enjoy your time in our program. Our aim is to provide you with a mentor who will help you develop the leadership skills, lifelong friendships, experience in community service, advocacy and education that will take you confidently into all phases of your life. Your mentor is your teacher with experiences of their own to share and wisdom to impart. With your mentors' help, you will learn the skills and tools needed to be empowered and succeed.

You will also develop a network of contacts, such as other mentors in potential fields of interest for employment or contacts from events attended (like Avanzamos teachers). Your own mentor may know quite a few people who can get you connected to the right people at the right time.
