Each student has a mentor in the community who shares the student’s interest. The mentor guides and coaches the student intern at the work site, while the student receives additional project support from the advisor back at school. The student is expected to contribute a substantial work of real consequence to the LTI site. The mentor becomes a part of the students learning team.
