Benefits of Mentorship York

  •  One-on-one match with a prominent community leader
    • Mentor match based on a strengths inventory, goals, and needs expressed in mentee’s program application.
    • Most mentor/mentee matches meet monthly to best accomplish goals and personal development; however, it’s up to the match to determine the best schedule and frequency of one-on-one meetings. Mentees are responsible for scheduling the meeting and agenda/discussion topics.
  • Access to other community leaders
    • Mentees gather monthly for an interactive presentation from one of the mentors.
    • Mentors are open to developing relationship with mentees not specifically matched, and always willing to meet outside of monthly sessions as appropriate.
  • Relationships with your cohort of mentees
    • The monthly group sessions offer a safe, confidential space to exchange ideas and seek feedback on challenges.
    • Each mentee is responsible for scheduling an informal get-together after their mentor’s session (serves as both an opportunity to debrief and added social interaction).
  • Personal and professional development
    • Program begins with an orientation session that includes a personal work/communication style analysis.
    • Participants develop SMART (specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, and timely) goals in consultation with their mentor, and use the one-on-one meetings as a means to track progress toward those goals.
