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.
