Being a Mentee at Hinesight

Mentoring is about getting ahead. It’s about being better with organization, with confidence, with improving your abilities and discovering new ones. It’s about better academic scores and learning to get the most out of academic opportunities. But, most or all, it is about having fun while learning and improving!

Hinesight pairs each mentee with a trained mentor that will work with you in a one-on-one relationship, helping, guiding and encouraging you to be your best. Hinesight also provides monthly group activities with other mentees in our program that help you build friendships and alliances.
