Become a PCF Mentor! 

Mentor recruitment happens on a rolling basis from December through May, however, mentors and scholars are matched in the spring. While a prospective mentor may interview in the winter and be considered “match-eligible” in PCF’s mentoring program, matching will not occur until mid May 2023.
