be a mentor

With your help, we can work together to empower and embrace women in need toward self-sufficiency
through education and training and elevate their lives to break the cycle of poverty and transform their futures.

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.
