FAU CARD iRISE2 Mentor Information Session

Orientation: 
Social skills are very significant tools to success in the workplace and our community.

As a dedicated, professionally trained mentor, you will be able to provide guidance, support and friendship through social engagement and exploring employment interests with your protégé. This orientation will provide mentors with a complete overview of the iRISE² Mentoring Program volunteer opportunities.

Must be at least 21 years of age or older
Open to maintaining a 1-year mentoring relationship
Minimum of 4-6 hours a month based on your availability
