“Mentoring is a process for the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, and the psychosocial support perceived by the recipient as relevant to work, career, or professional development; mentoring entails informal communication, usually face-to-face and during a sustained period of time, between a person who is perceived to have greater relevant knowledge, wisdom, or experience (the mentor) and a person who is perceived to have less (the protégé)”.
— Definition of mentoring

We ask four things of you as you apply to become a mentor:

  • You read all the materials sent to you about WWAC
  • You send WWAC a letter of recommendation from a friend/employee
  • You write a short essay on why you would like to be a mentor
  • You agree to a background check

Mentoring Responsibilities

  • Meet with your mentee in person once a month
  • Touch base via email, text, or phone call once a week
  • Encourage your mentee and hold them accountable
  • Actively listen to your mentee
  • Report back to Women With A Cause if there are any issues that arise. 

After we have met with you and have discussed our mentoring program we will assign you a mentee. We ask for a commitment of at least a year.

Occasionally WWAC will have a mentor event. This will be an opportunity to meet with other mentors to discuss your experiences and to ask questions.
