All Love, All Pride

June is Pride Mentoring Month

Pride Mentoring Month

June is Pride Month, a time when the LGBTQ+ community comes together to celebrate the freedom to be themselves.
This June, MENTOR is celebrating Pride Mentoring Month to increase visibility and elevate the voices of the LGBTQ+ community.
We hope to continue to close the mentoring gap by recruiting new mentors and mentees within the LGBTQ+ community.
