While ideas can be inspiring and uplifting, life is played out in the personal and in the particular. As a leadership program, Polaris seeks to engage each student where she is in life; for this reason, mentoring is the most important aspect of the program.
With her mentor, each student applies what she learned during the monthly sessions to her own circumstances, formulating goals and navigating the challenges she encounters.
The mentors are professional women who lead each Unit or serve on Polaris' Executive Committee.
They are committed to meet with their mentees at least once a month, and gladly make themselves available outside program hours.
