Mentoring Resources for Academic Success

Cultural Mentoring
GLOBAL PARTNERS

Every week, Global Partners has a group meeting during which we discuss a topic that allows different cultural views to be shared. Global Partners also matches non-native speakers of English with native speakers to help provide the opportunity to exchange cultures and to practice speaking conversational English one-on-one.

Professional Mentoring
STUDENT EDUCATION ASSOCIATION

We pair up a student who is pursing a career in education with a retired teacher. The teacher will be that student’s mentor based on their interests and can communicate with them how ever and as often as they want. We encourage students to join the program that are interested in getting information for the future, today.
