Mentor Sessions are small group sessions that allow you the time to ask questions and pick the brain of a dynamic leader from a field you're interested in. 

After reading and being inspired by the book "Half the Sky" by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, Avery McCall decided to devote herself to making a difference for people in crisis, particularly women and girls, across the globe. She has since served as a Teen Advisor to the United Nations Foundation's Girl Up Campaign, worked with an organization combatting sex trafficking in Southeast Asia, and tutored, mentored, and lived with resettled refugees. Bring your questions for Avery around balancing school and activism, taking gap years before or after college, finding and defining your personal narrative, being the youngest in the room, and more.
