How do I become a Magis Mentor?

Are you interested in continuing your journey through Magis? Become a Magis Mentor! Magis Mentors act as role models and guide Magis Fellows through their individual and group leadership process. Each Magis Mentor will be assigned a group of 5 Magis Fellows and lead the students through small group discussions and activities at the meetings (pre and post retreat) as well as throughout the retreat. To serve as a mentor you must have previously participated in the Magis Emerging Leadership Program.
