> Greetings:

> 
> 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 survey at:
