Mentorship programs run twice yearly, and we bring together people from all backgrounds. Our mentors and protégés work on various things, such as personal growth and development, leadership, workplace challenges, career changes, building networks, questioning comfort zones, and work-life effectiveness. Volunteer mentors donate their time; protégés pay between $50-$70 (sliding scale) to participate in the program. The funds cover program costs as we are entirely non-profit and volunteer-run. We also offer at least one free protégé spot per program to a community organization.

By doing nothing that could possibly make your lives better, you miss out on recognizing that life happens for you. Doing something means becoming the master of your own destiny, wherein endless possibilities open up to you, and the world becomes a place of opportunity, not obstacles.

You have what it takes to make a decision, commit, and create the life you want. The benefits of this are you build confidence, develop new skills, and a sense of pride and accomplishment.
Celebrate your success or reflect on your setbacks (for better results next time). A good example of this might be if the actual number of dinner guests was lower than the number of guests who RSVP’d they’d attend – not as a result of poor strategy (or the fact that you were serving chicken instead of fish), but rather, because some guests got sick, the babysitter didn’t show up, (or worse, got into a car accident) right before your party and were unable to let you know so you could make adjustments to the seating plan.
