"I honestly can’t think of any more rewarding time spent than mentoring in the Career Bridge program. Working with students who genuinely need help and guidance as they navigate life after high school feels so good and it feels so high impact. I know I got as much out of this as my mentee and I am certain he and I will be friends for life."
