Mentoring is one of the AFEW's missions. In line with this, the goal of this program is to connect young and experienced professional members of AFEW. This year’s program is expected to run from April 2021 to September 2021. This opportunity is only available to AFEW members.

- Mentees/Mentors will self-determine the meeting schedule, location, and topics. However, it is expected that mentorship will take place from the launch of the program through August 2021 with at least one meeting per month.
