Mentee Tips for Success
The video on the left covers key information for how to have a successful mentorship.

Once You're Matched, What Happens Next?
The video on the left covers your next steps once you receive a match. You will know you are matched when we send you a text/email with information about your mentor.
- Find your mentor's contact information on your dashboard. Introduce yourself to them!
- Set up your first videochat or phone call. We recommend videochat because it is an opportunity to speak to each other face to face.
- Connect with your mentor on social media. This step is optional, but we recommend it so you can stay in touch in between bigger conversations.
