A Mentor is an individual with 3 or more years of successful beekeeping experience, a desire to pass on their knowledge to our nation's heroes, and the ability to donate a single split, nuc or hive. Mentors will be partnered with a local area NewBEE in order to teach basic beekeeping skills.
A Mentor is expected to uphold organizational standards, have a positive attitude, model purpose, and develop a healthy relationship with their assigned NewBEE. Each relationship will differ based on experience, personality, and schedule availability.
As a mentor, BEE prepared to invest in yourself and your NewBEE.
