Mentorship Program

Our mentorship program, called Connect2Connect pairs older teens or young adults with IBD with a younger patient with Crohn’s or colitis. Newly diagnosed young patients or any pediatric patient who wants to talk to someone about living with Crohn’s or colitis can reach out to us at We train our mentors to work with their mentee and stay in close contact to ensure the relationship is beneficial.
