Do you have experience with comic creation- either professionally or as a hobby? Do you enjoy creating stories to go along with your comic creations? Looking for someone who is passionate about this area of the arts. If you are willing to impart your experience and knowledge and enjoy working with youth, this is the initiative for you! Hoping to connect a prospective mentor with a high school student who is looking for ways to build on their knowledge/skills and to possibly learn more about roles in this field- it is not necessary that you work in the field.

Student Links is an initiative that offers High School students who have an intellectual disability an opportunity to expand on current interests and hobbies, while discovering new possibilities for life after High School.

Your Role as a Mentor:
- Presenting information about your field of expertise
- Introducing a student to your hobby or industry
- Providing an opportunity for hands-on experience

This is an opportunity for you to help a student by sharing something you're passionate about.

Time commitments are flexible.
