PIKA mentorship program
Designed to match up more experienced PIKA members with new members, our mentorship program is a great opportunity to have someone to chat with about the paddling trips, about your gear, and just to have someone to bounce ideas and questions off of. Depending on who your mentor is, this person may also have an opportunity to go on some of the paddles with you. Are you new to the club, or at all unsure of how things work? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
