Our Process

Overview

Workplace student mentoring is a learning partnership between mentors and students in their senior year for purposes of sharing technical information, institutional knowledge, and insight with respect to a particular occupation, profession, organization or endeavor.

Mentoring is perhaps best described as a developmental process - dynamic and unique to each person. The MillBridge Foundation Student Mentorship Program (SMP) has demonstrated experience in connecting students and mentors to secure career placement for students when they complete mentoring.
