How Our Mentors Help

Our mentor coaches are a vital part of LITE's success. Our coaches work with our students on a weekly basis and help build their projects by giving advice on marketing, budgeting, pitching, and building relationships in the community. 

Become a Mentor

Since our program produces finalists every semester, we are always looking for more mentors to serve! If you are interested in learning more, feel free to contact us and we would love for you to come by the school and meet the students.


HEar From A Mentor

"Through high school and college, my most valuable experiences were never in the classroom — I found the most useful skills and lessons came from building and leading organizations. I mentor with LITE because it gives students the opportunity to successfully pursue their ideas and build the confidence and skill sets necessary to break cycles of poverty." 
- Evan Katz
