Program Overview

The LEAD Mentoring Program links role models from the local community with students participating in the LEAD Program. The program connects mentors who may be volunteers from business, industry, community organizations, and the UVU campus, with LEAD students.

Why Mentor?

The focus of the LEAD Mentoring Program is to support CAL students as they progress through the LEAD Program as well as their academic pursuits. Our goal is to assist students in their personal development and provide them with a network to encourage academic and social exploration.

LEAD Mentors are rewarded by sharing their knowledge and skills, helping others succeed, and supporting leadership development. All you need is a passion for student success and a willingness to spend a couple hours per month developing a relationship with students.

The LEAD Mentoring Program gives new students opportunities to have a successful first year in CAL and supports students through academic and social activities.

As a Yoruba (Nigeria, Togo, Benin) Proverb reads: "What you give is what you get, ten times over."
