“My mentor encouraged me to believe in myself and what I can accomplish in the future.” –Lesly O., Jr. Apprentice Alumni

Professional-Mentors are caring, committed working adults in the Hartford community. They are professionals in various industries including financial services & insurance, business, technology, healthcare, education and nonprofit management. They dedicate 3-6 hours a week to developing the future workforce. Professional mentors guide apprentices in a project that exposes them to their career, allows them to develop technical skills and knowledge in the field and offers them an opportunity to contribute to the workplace.
