How Mentorship Works

Members Sign Up

Group members sign up for Mentorship by listing themselves as an available partner in your group, and they share information about what they can offer or what they’re looking for.

Members Find a Match

Group members can browse a list of available mentors and mentees to find someone who suits their needs, and then they can request to start a Mentorship match.

Members Get Connected

When a group member reaches out to another member with a Mentorship request, this connects the two members so they can communicate one-on-one.

Make Progress with Guided Prompts

Mentorship sends helpful prompts to the mentorship pari with actions and discussion topics to help them reach their goals.

Best Practices for Your Community

  • Share the value Mentorship provides within your community by highlighting positive experiences and encouraging group members to share their own.
  • Encourage mentors and mentees to connect and communicate. The most meaningful conversations happen in the first two weeks, which improves chances of a successful mentorship match.
  • Post about your mentorship program often and encourage other group members to sign up.
  • Thank your mentors and remind your group members that Mentorship is a great way to pay it forward and have a positive impact on your community.
