> Greetings Bethany:
> The National Association of Blind Students is excited to announce that we will be hosting a mentoring program as part of the activities for students at the 2013 NFB national convention, being held in Orlando Florida from July 1 to July6. We will be pairing students up with one-on-one student mentors who are experienced with national convention and, ideally, share professional and other interests. I know, this sounds great. But, to make it work, we need your participation!
> We are looking for folks who would be interested in having, or serving as, a student mentor during the week of convention. When selecting mentees, we will give preference to first-time convention attendees. But if there is enough space, we would like to open it up to those of you who have already attended a convention as well.
> In order to be a mentee, you must:
> Be a high school junior or senior, or a current college or graduate student (nontraditional students are welcome); and
> Be available to attend a welcome meeting with us on Monday, July 1 from 6:00-7:30 p.m.
> If you want to apply to become a mentee, please fill out a short mentee survey.
> In order to be a mentor, you must:
> Have attended at least one NFB convention before;
> Be a current college or graduate student, or have graduated within the last two years (nontraditional students are welcome); and
> Be available to attend a welcome meeting with us on Monday, July 1 from 6:00-7:30 p.m., and then be willing to spend some time with your mentee throughout the week.
> If you want to apply to become a mentor, please fill out the short mentor survey
> Please share this with your friends or anybody who might be interested.
> Thank you for your interest in this new NABS program!
