  • Mentors describe their work/educational experience and preferences for a protégé.
  • The MentorNet relationship will last for 8 months.
  • Further information may be found in the frequently asked questions section of MentorNet web site.

How To Sign Up:

  • Signing up to get an e-mentor is an easy process.
  • FIRST, prospective protégés join/sign in to the MentorNet Community.
  • SECOND, follow the One-on-One Mentoring Programs links to create a protégé profile.

Matching:

  • Once a protégé creates a profile, she/he is presented with the profiles (minus identifying information) of up to 5 potential mentors.
  • The protégé then can choose one of these mentors or ask MentorNet to make the match automatically for her/him.
  • If after two weeks, the protégé has not chosen or asked MentorNet to choose, we will attempt to automatically match her/him with a mentor.
