The 2022 class is already underway, but we are accepting applications for the 2023 program all year round. To be considered for this program, please complete the application form for mentors and mentees. Twenty mentees and twenty mentors will be accepted into this 12-month program.
This program is for Arkansas residents only. Those selected for the 2023 class will be notified in October 2022. Once selected, mentors will be invited to a Meet & Greet with mentees, as well as a two-hour training in November. The 2023 program will begin in January 2023.
Mentors should meet with their mentee at least one hour a month, whether in-person or virtually. Additionally, this is a yearly program with the introduction of new mentees and mentors every year.
Our 2022 VCWoman Achieve mentors, mentees and sponsors were featured on THV11’s The Vine every Monday in May!
