Mentor Connect matches community members with research scientists at The Hormel Institute who are new to Austin and/or the United States and are interested in learning more about our community and American culture.

Mentors are people who want to spend time developing a friendship with a scientist. Activities that mentors and scientists have done together include meeting for coffee, having a family dinner, attending an Art Center lesson, or visiting a park
