The CEC Pioneers is a division of the Council for Exceptional Children. We are current and past leaders of CEC and offer a unique service to both CEC and the profession of special education. One of our primary services is our Mentoring Program. This premier program provides a supportive, caring, and information sharing virtual professional relationship between volunteer CEC mentors and CEC student members who become mentees. The relationship is built through sharing the resources of CEC, general state-of-the-art education information, resources from the IDEA Partnership, the individual mentor's knowledge, and actual teaching/administrative experiences of the mentor.
