As mentors, they have been through similar situations and therefore able to provide how the future can look like for me. Also, because of that, they often provided good emotional support while I was frustrated with the puzzle at hand. I am grateful for every mentor that helped me along my way.” Support for the Next Generation of Web Developers Lighthouse Labs has some pretty awesome community partnerships in the works this Fall which could also benefit from your expertise and experience, by joining us as a mentor.
