Counselor

Counselors are individuals who are not currently matched with a HEMP mentee, but have a wealth of experience they are willing to share with others in HEMP. Counselors have been through the mentor screening process and are eligible to become matched mentors. They may be willing to serve as a counselor on an as needed basis for a limited period of time (i.e., one or two meetings, a phone call) or may choose to be included in the ongoing pool of available mentors.

Society of Fellows

The Society of Fellows is open to anyone willing to support HEMP with a financial commitment, including mentors and counselors, that have been involved with HEMP for 3 years or longer. Participation in the Society of Fellows allows for a way to financially support HEMP and give back to HEMP for the benefits that you have received in the past as well as stay connected with others in the organization through invitations to the many HEMP events.
