We provided you with a copy of the CIP Mentor Booklet, so that you would fully understand, not only what is expected of you, but what will be asked/required of your Mentor.

· Once your CIP Mentor has completed the online application, they will receive a pre-filled CIP Mentor Application along with a mentor booklet that contains updated information.

· If all the information is accurate, your CIP Mentor will then sign the pre-filled Mentor Application, print it, and give it to you to submit to the MHS CIP Team on or before April 29, 2019. (Honestly, the earlier, the better.)

4. Matching the CIP Mentor and CIP Intern:
