Our Program

Our mentorship program is an enriching four-month journey commencing in March and culminating in June. 

Launching with an engaging networking and training event, participants will have the opportunity to connect, share insights, and set the stage for a transformative mentorship experience. Over the subsequent months, mentors and mentees will navigate their professional journeys together, exchanging knowledge and building lasting relationships.

As we reach the program’s conclusion, celebrate your achievements and milestones at our wrap-up event, reflecting on the progress made and the invaluable connections established.

Join us on this dynamic mentorship adventure, where March marks the beginning and June signals the culmination of a transformative journey.
