Peer Mentoring

Peer Mentoring is a unique program in which a person is paired with a mentor, with a similar disability, to help the mentee achieve independence.  A mentor, who is a volunteer, provides assistance and support to a mentee by sharing their own life experiences and empowerment.

If you would like to volunteer as a Mentor, please download the  Peer Mentoring Application.
