Become a Mentor
Women who have life experiences to share, are great listeners, have caring hearts, and are interesting in having a major impact in the community make great mentors! By becoming a volunteer mentor, you will work one-on-one with a mentee to provide support and guidance as she develops and works toward her education, career, and/or life goals.
What to Expect As a Mentor
- BE CONSISTENT: Consistently meet with your mentee one-on-one. These getting-to-know-you meetings, build the foundation for your relationship and establish your partnership. Then your meetings will transition to be focused more on your mentee's personal and professional development.
- CORE Program: You will meet with your mentee once per week.
- STEM Program: You will meet with your mentee at least one hour once per month.
- SHOW UP: Attend scheduled workshops 1 - 2 evenings per month. Workshops are usually 1.5-2 hours long and give you an opportunity to learn with, from, and about the other women in the group. Workshops are about gaining new information and skills, as well as building a community with the group.
- PUT EFFORT IN: We hear from mentors all the time telling us how much they learned and gained from their mentees. Open conversation, open hearts, and open minds benefit mentee and mentor equally.
