One-on-One Mentoring

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. Mentor-menteee discussions are structured around 12 themed modules, called "Conversations",

each with:

  • Anchor text: background information about the module topic.

  • Discussion prompts: to promote critical thinking and active learning.

  • Extension Activities: practical applications of the module concepts that teachers can view and evaluate.

  • Click here to take a peek at our curriculum.

4. Discussions happen via asynchronous messaging, done exclusively through our online platform.

  • Conversations are not live, so pairs can send messages whenever they want. No need to schedule meetings.

  • Mentors must respond within 3 days.

Our online one-on-one mentoring program is safe and secure.

  • Conversations are regularly monitored by the eMentoring staff.

  • Participants are not allowed to communicate outside the online platform.

  • We prohibit sharing of personal information, including email, social media handles, phone numbers.

  • 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.

  • Our online platform provider, MentorCity, is a Canadian company:

    • All servers are located in Canada

    • They do not rely on ad revenue, and do not sell their members' data to third parties.
