Frequently asked questions
Do I have to pay for this program?
No, neither Mentors or Mentees have to pay for the programme, because Mentor Her is a social enterprise, we fund our programme in other ways.
Is everyone guaranteed a Mentor?
We do our best to match every Mentee with a Mentor, but depending on numbers, sometimes this won't be possible. Mentees are not asked to pay for the program until they are matched with their Mentor at the beginning of the program.
What's the age range for Mentee applications?
Any woman can apply to be a Mentee, as long as they are 18 years or older. You may be a student, fresh out of college, looking for an opportunity to start your career. But we also give women who are older, maybe starting a business or returning to the workforce, an opportunity to apply, too. We believe that it doesn't matter what age you are, everyone needs help sometimes.
Do the Mentors get paid for this program?
Mentors do not get paid for this program, but they also do not have to pay any application charges. We give Mentors a range of deals, complimentary tickets and more as a thank you for taking part.
What's the age range for Mentor applications?
Any woman can apply to be a Mentor, as long as they are 18 years or older. Depending on your sucess so far, you might have a viable business and a lot of things to teach by the time you're 27. Or, you might have 20 years experience in your field and know that you have the ability to share this with your Mentee.
