Program 1

Mentoring

Since the early 1990s, LEI has provided structured, individual mentoring to high potential undergraduate and graduate students at campuses around the country. LEI’s unique style of mentoring mixes freewheeling discussion with strong ethical foundations, to provide highly practical guidance on students’ personal leadership development. Leadership Edge mentors come from our strong alumni network of doctors, attorneys, military officers, consultants, business and other community leaders. Mentors bring a deep experience living out principled leadership in high-demanding careers and lifestyles, enabling them to offer specific guidance and coaching on unique vocational challenges. LEI mentors are passionate about investing in the lives of the next generation of leaders to develop personally and professionally in their callings. And mentors offer a community of support in mentoring relationships, enabling true life-on-life growth and development.
