The first four weeks of the program focus on thinking forward.  You and your mentor will get to know each other and begin thinking about what you would like to do after high school.

 

Now that you’ve completed all of your program kickoff activities and learned more about the company, it’s time to start writing messages!

You will wait to receive your mentor’s first message.  When your mentor sends their message, it will be sent to your school email account.  When opening the email, you will be able to read your mentor’s message and click a link to go to the online portal.  The online portal is a safe and secure way for BestPrep to monitor the messages.  You will write your reply message into the box titled “Message” and click “Submit” at the bottom of the page!
