How do I find out who my mentor is?

You will be contacted directly by your mentor. How they contact you is up to the mentor it may be by phone, email, or text. All communications about where and when shoots are up to the mentor. You are expected to RSVP for each, and are, unless there is an unforeseen circumstance, be at all mentoring shoots or sessions. You should hear from your mentor by Friday, April 15, 2024.

What information is needed by my mentor?

Mentors will need an email and cell phone number. ASAP, add your mentor to your contacts to avoid missing communications. Your mentor will recieve this info as part of the sign up process gathered from your request.

CPS asks that each mentee carry the the following.

An envelope with your name and the name of an emergency contact with their phone number on the outside of the envelope. This should be with you-not in your car- at all times during a mentoring session. Inside of the sealed envelope, the following information should be on a sheet of papera.

a. Full name and address with emergency contact and phone number
b. Medical Conditions, prescription drugs, and allergies
c. Insurance info if you have it, copies of cards are excellent.

In case of emergency, this sealed envelope will be handed to EMS personnel. No one else will see it. Make sure if you have already done this in the past that the information is current.
