Why become a Mentor?

Mentorship offers professionals in the low incidence disability area of visual impairments a unique opportunity to gain both professional development experience and develop a personal and professional network within the field. Mentorship also offers the chance to pass on knowledge to other educators in the field, and in turn a vehicle for personal growth and fulfillment. Mentoring fellow educators in our field will promote a more dynamic, diversified, and knowledgeable educator base for students with visual impairments. Mentors will be provided with a stipend for their participation in the pilot project.
