  • Mentoring Program 

The NOW Generation offered a pilot mentoring program from May 2014 – July 2014.  The pilot consisted of 6 mentors from various organizations assigned to 13 mentees across the United States.   

The NOW Generation Committee is making modifications to the program based off of feedback about the pilot.  The next cycle is scheduled for Spring 2015. Please email  now.generation@bignet.org if you’re interested in participating as either a Mentor or a Mentee.


Thanks for Thinking BIG!
