Testimonials

Are you thinking about applying to be a part of the CSIH MentorNet program?

MentorNet has a lot to offer, but we hope individuals are able to grow both professionally and personally throughout the program, and feel better equipped and informed about their field when they have completed our monthly module curriculum! We realize we are in the business of people, therefore the experience may vary from person to person. We have however, asked previous SYP’s and Mentor’s to write a summary of their personal experience as well as how they may have been influenced by the program so you can get an idea of what you may experience throughout the program months.
