"For the past year, I have been working with EnPoint to build a new mentorship platform. The charity I work for had never run a mentorship program before but we knew it could be a great add-on to our services. EnPoint was incredibly helpful in setting up the platform by providing the team with guidance, building resources for our program participants, regular check-ins and so much more. The team was always great to work with and open to new ideas. Whenever we had issues, Michelle was always quick to respond to our e-mails and always happy to set up a call to work through things together. The EnPoint team truly understood the importance of the mentorship program for our charity and was always eager to help us reach our targets."
