Each fall, volunteers from the professional world connect with our senior scholars during the season where they research and write a paper to present to a panel of staff and volunteers. This work, and their interactions with professionals, is part of NLCP’s strategy to prepare and equip scholars to succeed in college. Our 2019 dates are: Day 1 – Wed, Sept 18 / Day 2 – Wed, Oct 16 / Day 3 – Wed, Nov 20. All three Mentor Days will run from 8:30-10:30 am.
