The group meetings with take place once during the designated months. Mentors are available for questions outside of meeting times. Mentor's availability will be discussed in the parent/mentor/mentee meeting.
If I am not satisfied with the mentoring my child is receiving, Can I receive a refund?
We make every effort to ensure your child is a fit for our program and their mentor. This is accomplished through information sessions, one-on-one phone calls and/or meetings, screening questionnaires, and mentor/mentee/parent check-in sessions. Sometimes, mentees and parents may not be satisfied. In the event you are unsatisfied with the mentoring received, the Director will speak with the parent and mentee about any concerns and make every effort to remedy them. If an agreement can not be made, and the mentee will discontinue the program, the parent may be eligible for a refund (if paid full year upfront) for the months following the month you are choosing to discontinue. For example, if your decision to discontinue takes place in August, you may be eligible for a refund for the months September to December. The application fee is non-refunable.
