i-Trek cannot exist without volunteer mentors. Mentors guide Trekkers as they plan and formulate their research project by providing advice and expertise. Mentors are highly encouraged to accompany the students on their ‘Trek‘. If you would like to become a mentor, please complete the form below and submit it for consideration. Mentors are selected based on the expertise necessary for each research project and, because they are required to work closely with Trekkers, MUST undergo a background check.
What is expected of mentors?
Have experience and skills relative to the field of the Trek research project
Once a week check-ins with students (can be emails)
Monthly conference calls with the students
Availability to accompany the Trekkers on all or some portion of the Trek
Provide guidance to the Trekkers throughout the entire Trek process
