Women's Mentorship Project
The Women's Resource Center is recruiting mentors for our Women's Mentorship Project! The Women's Mentorship Project (WMP) is a peer to peer program that provides opportunities for non-traditional students to work together to build community, provide support, and help meet the ultimate goal of degree completion. The mission of the WMP is to facilitate an empowering experience for women by women that provides social, personal, and professional growth for both mentors and mentees. The WMP is focused primarily on non-traditional woman students by addressing issues that concern women 25 years old or older, women transferring from community colleges, women veterans, student parents, women of color, and first generation students. Please contact Sheena Ino at email@example.com with any questions.
