Mentor Information

Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have positive effects on other people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. CHARGE mentors guarantee that participants have someone who cares about them and are there to help them navigate life at Wake Forest. Mentors will have a small group of CHARGE participants to lead throughout their journey in the program. Your commitment will be to attend Leadership Labs with your group, attend weekly mentor meetings, assist with the facilitation of activities during the CHARGE retreat, and meet with your group members regularly.

CHARGE recruits mentors each spring. Check back in early March for applications and more information.
