  • The ability to serve as a role model;
  • Available to attend evening training sessions during August 2013 (dates to be announced);
  • A letter of recommendation from a School of Business faculty member;
  • An interview.

Allies will receive a $500 stipend upon successful conclusion of all meetings with your assigned participants each semester.  A Certificate of Leadership will be issued to Allies at the end of training.
