Frequently Asked Questions

Within the next work day, we will reach out to you to set up a video call with you and your child. We begin by sharing more about the program and answer any questions you and your child have. If you and your child are interested in participating, we dive into what they’re passionate and immediately begin the search for a local mentor! The mentor search typically takes four weeks. We will keep you posted throughout our search.

All mentors undergo a rigorous eligibility process including an application, interview, reference check, and state required background checks.

A Connecting Champions employee is on every single video meeting with the the child and their mentor. We ask that a parent or guardian is on the call as well, or at least in the same room.

Although the mentor experience is specifically for the child, siblings are always welcome to join!

It does not matter what stage the child is in during the cancer journey. Whether they were just diagnosed or are 10 years out of treatment, we are here and ready to find a mentor! We serve ages 3-26.
