Am I Eligible For A Mentor?
Anyone 24 years of age and under is eligible to apply for the one-on-one mentor program.
What will the Mentor and I Do?
Together, you and your mentor will decide what to do. It can be anything super fun like going to the beach or super productive like going to a networking event together. Additionally, you will work on your Life Plan (short and long term goal setting) and enjoy each other’s company. There is no set routine! You, the mentee, make it what you want it to be!
How Often Do We Have To Meet Up?
You are required to communicate with your Mentor a minimum of once a week and meet in person a minimum of twice a month.
What if I am not out to my parents?
Don’t sweat it, you do not need to be nor should you feel pressured to come out, however, a mentor can have the experience you need to start taking those first steps.
What is the Process to Get a Mentor?
- Complete the online LifeWorks Mentee Application.
