Thank you very much for your interest in our program! As we are a new initiative within the NYSCC Chapter, we ask that at this time for our mentors and mentees to belong to the NYSCC Chapter. We hope that as we grow bigger and stronger we can begin recruiting outside of our chapter. In the meantime please feel free to contact us for recommendations and future updates.
