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
- Meet with your mentee for about an hour a week. These meetings begin as getting-to-know-you meetings, building the foundation for your relationship and establishing the partnership. Then your one-on-ones transition to be focused more on your mentee’s personal and professional development.
- Attend virtual workshops 1-2 evenings per month. Workshops are usually 1.5-2 hours long and give all participants an opportunity to learn with, from, and about the other women in the group. Workshops are about mentees gaining new information and skills, as well as building a community with the group. You’ll get the workshop schedule during your interview.
- 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.
