Become a mentor at our events

At Disability Allies, we rely on Mentors to provide a fun and safe social experience for our Mentees . Mentors are those who attend events to provide guidance to Mentees. They help the Mentees at the event interact and ensure participation in the activities. Each Mentor gets paired with one Mentee during our events, but our goal is to create a lasting bond that goes beyond that first encounter. We recommend that individuals who would like to be mentors are confident in their interpersonal skills and ability to encourage mentee engagement.

To become a mentee you must do the following:

  1. Sign up HERE to be notified about our events.
