Am I ready to be a mentor?

We hear quite often that people believe that they aren't "good enough" to be a mentor. Usually, that's incorrect. Nonetheless, we wanted to give you a little checklist.

You need time

We are quite flexible in how much time you want to invest. Depending on what you provide, this can be between 5 minutes per day, or multiple hours per week.

You need to show up

We don't care what degree you have, or what awards you've won. The #1 reason why people love our mentorships is because people care for them and are available.

You need some experience

We have found that mentorships work best if people bring a bit of relatable industry experience with them. If you've just entered your undergrad program, let's wait a bit.

You DON'T need a fancy degree or decades of experience

Our mentoring team includes high school dropouts and PhDs, Junior Web Devs and Senior Product Managers. We're open to anyone if we feel like you can help people.

Being open and empathic

You'll meet people from all sorts of backgrounds and situations. There is no space for elitism or judgement. Be open and understand people's needs. You'll be fine.

Is this for me?

If you're still wondering if you're cut to be a mentor, let us do the work, and just apply. We pride ourselves with being open, inclusive and honest. All you can get out of this is growth.
