How it works:
1. Mentors and mentees create profiles on our safe, secure, online platform MentorCity.
2. The eMentoring staff matches mentees to their mentors based on their profiles. We match pairs based on things they have in common.
3. Choose from a variety of topics in our curriculum, called "conversations", that mentees will discuss with their mentor.
4. Each conversation includes discussion questions, along with videos, articles or activities.
Pairs discuss each topic by sending messages to each other exclusively through our online platform.
Conversations are not live, so pairs can send messages whenever they want.
Mentors must respond within 3 days, and are trained to relate to the students by sharing their own experiences, provide encouragement, and support their mentee.
Our online one-on-one mentoring program is safe and secure.
Conversations are regularly monitored by the eMentoring staff. Participants are not allowed to share personal information (email, social media handles, phone numbers), and communicate exclusively through our platform.
Our mentors complete a rigorous application process, which includes a background check and training--so your students are in good hands!
We will contact you if there is anything to be concerned about with your students, including inappropriate behaviour, mental health problems, illegal activities, abuse or neglect, bullying, abusive relationships, etc.
