The UWF Executive Mentor Program is the best I've seen because it is carefully tailored to meet the specific needs of each mentee. The program matches an experienced mentor with each young mentee based on the mentee’s specific need and the mentor’s unique ability to fulfill that need. It also matches based on mutual personal interests which further bonds the relationship… and that relationship is then nurtured to success.
