Make Your Mark as a Mentor

Part of the mission of USF Women in Leadership & Philanthropy is to teach the value of leadership and philanthropy at all levels. Opportunities for mentoring through USF WLP focus on a connection between students and WLP members with multiple opportunities that fit into different categories of time commitment, setting, and topic. As a program, we want to provide an easy, comfortable and convenient opportunity for WLP members to serve as a mentor and fulfill their desire to give back to USF students. For students and WLP scholarship recipients we want to provide connectivity to WLP members, campus leaders and community influencers that can help guide, educate and positively impact their personal and professional growth and development.
