GeoMentor Case Studies

We have a growing collection of case studies documenting successful GeoMentoring engagements that help us improve the program by learning from our GeoMentors' experiences.and also inspire and encourage other GeoMentors in their efforts!  Check out our case study library below to learn the different ways GeoMentors are working with the K-12 education community throughout the US.

If you're interested in submitting your GeoMentor experience for a case study, we would appreciate you doing so through this survey. The collected information will only be accessible to and used by AAG and Esri program staff and will not be further distributed or posted online (e.g. on this page) unless you indicate your permission to do so.
