Mentee Application

Tandem Mentorship Program appreciates you and your child's interest in his/her becoming a mentee. This application is intended as a means of informing and gaining the consent of the parent/guardian to allow their son/daughter to participate in the Tandem Mentorship Program. Please have your child help fill out their interests at the bottom of this application. 

Much of the information you supply in this application packet will be used to match your child  with an appropriate mentor. Therefore, the mentoring staff may, at times, need to access and share this information with prospective mentors and other parties when it is in the best interest of the match. However, we do not reveal names until there is an initial interest from the mentee, parent/guardian, and mentor based first upon anonymous information provided about each other.

After receiving this completed application from you, we will evaluate the information and send you a letter letting you know if your child has been accepted into the mentoring program.
