Mentors

Mentors in Residence will hold open office hours at the Wond’ry so that students can receive one-on-one personalized guidance and gain access to years of expertise in the fields they hope to enter. This is one of many Wond’ry programs designed to increase learning outside of the classroom and to encourage the pursuit of meaningful connections that lead to independent entrepreneurial and creative endeavors.

Email the Wond’ry if you are interested in becoming a mentor/entrepreneur in residence.
