From November 30th to December 15th

"Matching" is a fun process in which you get to meet several volunteer business mentors and decide which one is the best fit for you. During 2 weeks you'll have 30min initial meeting with several mentors, and you will eventually rank them by order or preference. We'll then finalize who is your final "match": the one mentor who will guide you all along the program.
