The FIRM program offers a variety of informal and formal meetings for mentees and mentors to work toward mutually agreed-upon goals in 3 program areas: personal development, job shadowing, and project completion.
Mentors will help mentees by coaching them through life challenges, assigning character or career development reading, and completing a 1-hour minimum service project together.
FIRM requires a minimum of 8 hours of job shadowing (4-meeting minimum) provided or facilitated by mentors.
Mentees will take the lead role in a small career-related project and present it (to the mentor or a group) on an agreed-upon date. Projects are meant to give mentees an opportunity to excel in their fields of interest and gain confidence.
