A Mentor must be passionate about the student’s success. A mentor commits to holding four, one-on-one meetings with their mentee throughout the year. Some examples of one-on-one meetings can be "Take Your Mentee to Work Day" or invite them out to a PMPI Educational Experience or event. Each mentor will receive monthly modules to help guide the mentoring process. The mentor can utilize these resources or develop his/her own process. Mentoring can focus on a variety of topics including: personal and professional development, career advice, ethics and leadership, etc.
