“Teichert is currently serving as a Prime Mentor for the Caltrans District 4 Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP). The program is designed to facilitate and support the engagement of prime and small businesses contractors in the construction industry and on Caltrans projects. The focus is on fostering work relationships that develop the small contractor’s ability to participate in delivering high-quality construction projects and increase the network of well-qualified subcontractors available to work with primes and Caltrans. As a mentor, Teichert has led workshop discussions, hosted small-group feedback sessions and one-on-one office hours with program Protégés. Teichert’s active participation supports the program methodology of a group mentoring approach to capitalize on building relationships and knowledge both vertically with Caltrans and the primes as well as horizontally with small contractor peers.”
