This year TRIEC Mentoring Partnership was delighted to highlight the outstanding contributions of our community partners over six weeks in a series of blogs from each partner. Thank you to our community partners and mentoring coaches for supporting mentors and mentees before, during, and after the partnership to ensure the smooth operation of the program. In addition, all mentoring coaches received a certificate of recognition for their hard work and dedication to the program.
