Please know that our Mentorship Coordinators are here to support you, with discretion, throughout your mentorship experience. While we have been quite thoughtful and rigorous in our matching process, an unanticipated issue between a mentor and mentee may arise. If you find yourself in such a position, we encourage you to contact a coordinator without delay. We would much rather circumvent an issue from happening in the first place, than for your mentorship relationship to be compromised altogether.
