NCHL's Role

Collect – NCHL will solicit and review applications from prospective mentors and mentees.

Match – As able, NCHL will match all eligible mentors and mentees based on application questions including professional experience, skills, development objectives/goals/, location (if relevant), etc.
Please note, that while our goal is to match as many applicants as possible, we are limited by the number of mentors available.

Connect – NCHL will facilitate the initial connection between mentors and mentees to assure a smooth introduction. Mentors and mentees take it from there.

Evaluate – As an initiative of NCHL, we have a responsibility to assure this programming is effective and meaningful to our members. Therefore, we are committed to evaluating the program mid-cycle and at the conclusion. Additionally, we welcome direct feedback from participants throughout the program.
