How Stefanie became a mentor for the 100k Mentor Challenge

Here's how we find you the perfect mentee

It all begins with a portfolio of potential candidates

A quick, interactive sign up enables us to understand your preferences and bring you a group of 2-6 top matches.

Where do the students come from?

The students come from different underrepresented communities (Women, People of Color, LGBTQ, Veterans, 1st Generation College students, and students with disabilities) from across the country.

What is a student portfolio?

Your custom portfolio is selected based on 25 different variables. Your portfolio represents the students who we feel you can help the most.

How much does it cost?

The program is completely free for you. We wanted to have the greatest impact possible and we didn’t want cost to be a barrier.

How do you choose my mentee?

We combine your portfolio rankings with the portfolio ratings of the other mentors/mentees and then optimize who fits best with whom.

What if I don't like my selection?

We encourage you to try to work with your mentee, but sometimes the connection is not there so just contact us and we will get you set up with another student (limits apply).

What are the commitments?

You are commiting to supporting a student over the course of a four month Season. We require that you come prepared to each session and meet with your mentee(s) at least once a month for an hour throughout the Season.

Teach the next generation how to successfully take their first steps and jump start their professional career.

Just one hour a month can change a life

See & Feel Your Impact

Working with my mentor completely changed my decision on what I wanted to do. Without their support, I could not have made the change, but looking back on it, I am so happy that I did.

Anton S.

What happens at the end of a Season?

At the end of a Season, you have the option of continuing with your match or requesting another match.

What if I am too busy next Season?

We know things can get hectic which is why we have created an option for you to take a Season or two off whenever you need.

Can I stay connected with my mentee after the program?

Absolutely. We hope you stay in touch and that it becomes a powerful relationship for both of you for years to come.

Meet some incredible people along the way...
