Why do you like mentoring with ICE?

I enjoy assisting catalysts to maximize their capacity to bring their projects and ideas to fruition. ICE has utilized its collaborative network to see catalysts and their projects succeed and giving back to help others do the same is very rewarding.

Who would you like to mentor with ICE?

Participants in remote communities, specifically Arctic/Nunavut, and those working for a local government or small business entrepreneurs.
