How the One2One Mentor Program Works

All prospective mentors and protégés must complete the application form that follows, regardless of previous program participation, and submit it along with a current resume that includes work history, educational background, special skills and interests, and any other relevant biographical information. The information is intended to assist the One2One Committee to match mentor / protégé pairs based upon background and career tracks. Following the matching process, applicants will receive a reply letting you know if you have been accepted into the One2One Program and next steps.

Each pair is required to meet face to face on a monthly basis individually, and to participate in monthly structured group sessions scheduled from September 2017 through May 2018. The monthly sessions feature a curriculum of speakers and workshops designed to facilitate personal and career development for both mentors and protégés. These sessions will revolve around a specific topic and provide opportunity for learning and group discussion. Please note – the monthly group sessions are always on Fridays at a time and central location To Be Determined.
