You've completed your registration, been matched up, and embarked on your mentoring journey. Depending on your program, you may have a predefined relationship length in which your administrator will provide relationship closure guidance and unmatch you after a certain amount of time.
In some cases, you may wish to leave a relationship early. Perhaps you and your partner have already achieved all your goals or you have determined that the match isn't a good fit. In either case, you can opt to leave your relationship at any time by following the steps and best practices below.
