Mentor Onboarding Process
Become a Mentor
This initial form lets our staff know of your interest in becoming a mentor. Once you complete this form, you’ll be contacted by a YMI staff member to learn more!
Once we’ve received your interest form, you’ll be scheduled for a one-on-one conversation with YMI’s Director of Mentor Development. This allows you to learn more about YMI, mentor expectations, as well as share more about yourself and why you would like to become a mentor.
If both parties agree it’s a good fit after the mentor interview, you’ll be invited to complete a mentor application. The mentor application is the main tool used to create a thoughtful, strong match between mentor and mentee. The unique link will be provided to you following your mentor interview.
Safe Visitor Background Check
Invitation to Training
Onboarding mentors are required to attend a one-hour in-person training before being considered for a match. This training offers information about YMI students, discusses policies of the program, and prepares mentors for their first match meeting.
Once all the steps above are completed, you are ready to be matched with a student! YMI will consider your application, interest, and availability to make the best match we can with a student based on their onboarding materials as well.
