How eMentoring Works
1. All mentees and mentors create profiles on our safe, secure, online platform MentorCity.
Your mentor is a student in post secondary in BC. All mentors are volunteers--they WANT to help you succeed! Many join because they wish they had a mentor when they were in your shoes, or they had a great mentor and want to pay if forward.
2. The eMentoring staff will match you to your mentor based on stuff you have in common.
3. Choose from a variety of topics, called "conversations", to discuss with your mentor.
Choose the conversations that interest you.
Each conversation includes discussion questions, along with videos, articles or activities.
You can also complete extension activities without your mentor.
Check out our curriculum map for more info.
4. You and your mentor will communicate by sending messages to each other through our online platform.
Conversations are not live, so you can send messages whenever you want.
Your mentor will respond within 3 days. They will share their own experiences, and provide encouragement, and support.
