What is your preferred method of communication? Please check all that apply.
The NGMP requires attendance to 2 of our programs and 4-6 hours of mentor/mentee engagement over the course of the Spring 2021 quarter. Are you able to commit to these requirements in order to receive credit? If not, please provide more information as to way this may not be feasible for you.
Is there anything else you'd like us to know that would be valuable for us to know when creating pairs? Do you have any preferences or things you'd like us to prioritize? If so, please document that here.
