Duties of Mentors and Mentees
Share |

Commitment

While we like to leave the requirements of the program up to the individual mentor and mentee, there are a few basic requirements as follows.

  • Complete self assessments on learning style, color profile, and other questionnaires to facilitate the best matching experience.
  • Provide Resume
  • The mentor will clearly define availability and collaborate with the mentee to define a timeline. This may range from a very acute need (1-3 months), to a lifelong relationship.
  • FPTA will require quarterly surveys for up to 1 year (4 total) from the mentor gathering feedback on the following:
  • Success of the pairing of mentor to mentee
  • Frequency of contact (daily, weekly, monthly, bi-monthly)
  • Method of contact (face to face, virtual via web, email, phone calls, text)
  • Whom is initiating the contact
  • What strategies/techniques have been most helpful in ensuring your mentee is actionable in their pursuit of mentorship?
  • Has your mentee successfully achieved their goal?
  • Are you ready for a new mentee?
  • Can you manage more than one mentee?
  • Do you have any additional or different preferences in a match?
