What to Expect

Here's how the eMentoring program works:

  1. Contact us to sign up your students. They will create profiles on our online platform, MentorCity, and the ReMBC staff will match them to a mentor based on their profile. 

  2. Once the students are matched, they will be able to view the curriculum and message their mentors through MentorCity.

    • The curriculum:

      • Consists of 8 Personal Quest Units, each with 5-8 activities covering various topics. Please see the ReMBC Personal Quest Curriculum Map for a complete list of topics

      • ​Each activity has a short reading, along with videos, games, and other activities.

      • Pairs discuss each activity by sending messages to each other. 

      • Discussion questions for each activity spark meaningful conversations.

    • Conversations:

      • Pairs can only send messages through MentorCity, ensuring participant safety.

      • Conversations are not “live” so pairs can send messages whenever they want.

      • Mentors must respond within 3 days.

      • Mentors are trained to relate to the students by sharing their own experiences, provide encouragement, and to be supportive of their mentee.

  3. We recommend to allocate at least 10 hours over a semester or school year to eMentoring. Here are some suggestions for how you can do this:

    • 30 minutes in class, twice a week

    • Require students to complete 3 to 5 activities by the end of each week as homework

    • A combination of class time and homework, equaling 1 hour or 3 to 5 activities per week.

  4. The ReMBC team monitors all conversations to ensure student safety, and to make sure the students are satisfied with their experience. If students are unhappy at any time, they can reach out to the ReMBC team; we can mediate situations and are happy to assign students new mentors on request.
