When: On July 2nd, we will hold our introduction meet-and-greet, which will be filled with fun games, and activities to kick off the mentoring relationship.
Who: Blind students and first time convention attendees will be mentees, blind professionals, and seasoned convention attendees will serve as our mentors.
