How does the LifeWorks Mentorship Program work?

Each mentor is trained with skills to be there for their mentee — not as parents or teachers, but as people who are able to guide them in being their absolute best selves. Each mentorship is unique, and consists of everything from short- and long-term goal setting, to building their understanding of the LGBTQ+ community.
