Be a mentor

The Mentoring Program welcomes mentors from both the Calvin and Grand Rapids community to participate in the lives of Calvin students. As a mentor, you will commit to meeting with your mentee approximately six times each semester. It will be up to your mentee to arrange your meetings. Our office provides mentoring resources, including training sessions, coffee coupons and on-campus event tickets to enrich your relationship.
