Join a network that will help bridge the path of your dreams!
Become a part of our mentorship program, where our goal is to support differently-abled people in achieving their full potential for personal and professional development by pairing them with a skilled and compassionate mentor.
Through our nonprofit, this program is free of charge and is open to anyone in the United States with a diagnosed disability. Our mentoring program is a nationwide, online mentoring community for differently-abled individuals who are interested in support for adjusting to a new community, environment or career. Participants have access to qualified mentors, who offer feedback and guidance anywhere on their journey from school, to social life, to employment.
Mentors are able to provide mentees a ‘bridge’ to future successes through professional and personal guidance as they navigate life’s challenges. Conversations can be conducted virtually or in person to accommodate the needs and schedules of both parties. Consider the current state of our world, the need for one on one human connections is greater than ever, and the pandemic has magnified the necessity and benefits of virtual networks.
The mentoring program allows people to connect with others on a personal level and build strong, trusting relationships to help guide mentees toward their future goals This program addresses varying stages of life - students acclimating to high school life, as well as preparing to graduate and enter the workforce.
Mentees meet with their mentor face-to-face or via teleconference at a minimum of 1 hour per month over the course of 3 months. Mentees are encouraged to connect via other methods (phone, email, etc) during the 3-month period with any questions or guidance that they may need.
To be selected for mentorship through this program, an application must first be completed. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and you will be contacted with further details if you’re selected as mentee for this program.
Once you’ve completed a 3-month mentoring program, you may re-apply for another area of mentoring, receiving up to 3 mentors per fiscal year.
We are always seeking enthusiastic volunteer mentors!
