You’ll only request support when you’re ready to actively work with one of our volunteer advisors or mentors. If you aren’t ready yet, just set yourself to the status “Busy” until you are.
Once you’ve messaged with someone and agreed to meet, you should be ready to set up a meeting (by phone, video chat, or in-person) within the next two weeks.
You’ll attend scheduled meetings on time or provide notice if you will be late or need to reschedule.
You’ll rate your experience and provide feedback when asked by our Member Experience team.
