The matching process

  • At this stage, you will be able to review their profile and decide whether you believe you are able to support them. You are able to accept or reject the mentoring request though the platform.
  • If you accept the match, it is up to the mentee to make contact through the platform to arrange the conversation.
  • Mentees are provided with tools to help define their goals, there are also tools, tips and videos to support mentors.
