Contact the UWM ENGAGE program manager, Jessica Silvaggi, to learn more and fill out a questionnaire below to describe your expertise areas, interests, and amount of time you are willing to volunteer per month. You will be matched with innovators based on your answers.
Each party gets out of the program what they put into it. A goal would be at least a monthly meeting between mentors and innovators to keep the ball rolling. You can stop at any time as an innovator. We prefer mentors commit to at least 6 months to keep continuity for an innovator team. The program is flexible, and we are available to help for a single meeting with innovators as well as long term mentoring.
