Product overview & how it works

  • Product overview

    When admins turn on mentorship, group members can elect to sign up and add details about the experiences and expertise they can share as a mentor, or the topics and areas that they’re looking for help with as a mentee.

    Anyone in a group can browse and choose their own mentorship partner based on the specific interests that people list when they sign up to participate.

    They can speak directly to the partner with a request and communicate in a one-on-one space in Messenger with helpful prompts to guide them.

  • How it works

    Sign-up: Group members can create a mentorship profile and share what they’re offering or looking for in a mentorship.

    Find a partner: Group members can browse a list of available partners to find a match based on specific interests, and request to start a mentorship.

    Get connected: Once their request is accepted, the pair are connected in a one-on-one space on Messenger.

    Guided mentorship: Partners can also receive structured prompts with actions and discussion topics to help the pair reach their goals.

“The Facebook Mentorship programme is a game-changer for our group. Having experienced mentors work together with knowledge-hungry mentees allows members to really focus on specific needs, issues and goals and become better prepared to meet the needs of their employers. It has already been a huge success for our members, and we have new mentors and mentees signing up daily.”
