Grow and Develop
The program is designed to foster formal, facilitated mentoring connections to help students in areas related to academic, social and develop and advance in their careers. In effort to offer TRIO students a unique experience, the TRIO office will work with a TRIO peer or a community professional to:
Build and sustain relationships that provide mentoring opportunities with high integrity TRIO students and employers for the mutual benefit of gaining valuable experience and strengthening skills.
Mentors will be local community professionals or a TRIO peer with passion to help and offer valuable advice and wisdom at critical points in a person’s academic and career development. In its simplest form, mentoring is people helping people helping people grow and develop.
Mentors and mentees will agree on the goals of the partnership and the frequency of the mentoring meetings.
