Thank you for registering to become a mentor!
Registrations close on Thursday, 15 February 2018 and after that, a mentor-mentee match will be allocated. 

We expect the program to be popular, and while every effort will be made to match you with a mentee, completion of registration does not guarantee a place in the program, as this is dependent on the availability of best-match mentee/mentor.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Donella Roberts (donella.roberts@housinginstitute.org).
