Are you ready to be a mentor?
We hear quite often that people believe that they aren't "good enough" to be a mentor. Usually, that's incorrect. Nonetheless, we wanted to give you a little checklist.
1. You need some time
We are flexible in how much time you want to invest. Depending on what you provide, this can be between 5 minutes per day and some hours per week, but you need to make time for that commitment.
2. You need to show up
The #1 reason why people love our mentorships is because people care for them and are available. If you can't commit to checking in once per day or two, this might not be for you.
Your experience counts
We have found that mentorships work best if people bring a bit of industry experience with them. If you are coming straight out of school, let's wait for a bit.
3. You don't need a fancy degree
We're open to anyone if we feel like you can help people.
4. Being open and empathic
You'll meet people from all sorts of backgrounds and situations. There is no space for elitism or judgement.
5. Being open and understanding people's needs is a must.

Is this for me?
If you are unsure, just let us do the work and apply. We pride ourselves with being open, inclusive and honest. The least you can get out of this is growth and some feedback.
