Business Mentor Opportunities
I am looking for more businesses and organizations within the Seneca Falls community to partner with the Mynderse Academy School-to-Career Program!

- Jointly establish goals and objectives for the day with the student
- Define areas of confidentiality with the student
- Share experiences and expertise
- Provide a safe working environment
- Provide opportunities for the student to observe associated careers within their interest
- Complete a student evaluation form
What types of careers are students interested in?
Everything!! The sky is the limit!
Here is a list of some of the career fields that our students are interested in:
- Athletic trainer
- Auto sales and restoration
- Clothing designer
- Computer programming/technology
