Reach Out and Connect

When you've found mentors who might be a good fit for you, send them a message and introduce yourself! Tell a few potential mentors who you are, what your needs are, and why you think they'd be a good fit. Your potential mentors will read your message, take a look at your profile, and let you know if they're available to help.

Begin Your Relationship and Start to Grow

Once you've agreed to work together, the sky's the limit! You and your mentor will decide what to discuss and how frequently you'll be in contact. Plan your mentoring relationship around the help you need and your availability. It could be a few months, the next year, or even longer. The average mentoring pair meets one hour per week over 3 months.
