DO-IT Mentors


Mentors encourage DO-IT Scholars, Ambassadors, and Pals as they pursue academic programs and careers. Some Mentors are still in college; others are pursuing careers. Most have disabilities themselves. They share valuable experiences, insights, and resources with younger participants.
