Smithtown’s Industry Advisory Board met on Oct. 25 at High School East to participate in a mentor training program. 

Facilitated by Diane Urso, regional director of the New York State Mentor Training Program, the IAB members learned about the benefits and roles of their decision to become mentors. Urso offered mentoring strategies, tools, goal setting, support and how to build a relationship with their new mentees. She spoke about the characteristics of a good mentor, respecting boundaries and becoming active listeners. 

Members of the IAB mentor program are local businesspeople who are active in giving back to the students of Smithtown.  

High School East and West students ambassadors were also present for the meeting, participating in a training session on how to do elevator pitches and interview with Maria Frey and Tylar Vigliarolo of Executive Consultants of New York.
