As a mentor, you are expected to: 

  • Meet with your mentee once a week at school (24 or more times per school year)
  • Be there to show support for your mentee through thick and thin 
  • Focus on your mentee’s strengths to build their confidence

Don’t worry, we train you! 

After we receive your application and process your background check, a local TeamMates representative will reach out to schedule your 2-3 hour new mentor training. In your training, you’ll learn: 

  • Expectations for the mentor and mentee
  • Safety guidelines and procedures 
  • What to do during your match meetings
  • How to be a strengths-based mentor
