MENTORSHIP PROGRAM The Mentorship Program and LIP Committees are composed of dedicated volunteers who help LIP students strengthen their leadership skills.
Students have access to established professional mentors who will help foster confidence, as well as allow learning through role modeling, and offer valuable advice and support, along with resources for their overall pursuits.
Mentors interact and communicate with mentees to ensure retention in our program and aid with college preparation.
Mentors participate and attend all seminars, Mentor Convocation, End-of-Year Ceremony, and all other activities as desired.
Must be a member of HWNT
We welcome LIP Alumnae to come back and serve as mentors!
