• What Does MENTEE Do?

  • Our Program

    MENTEE global mentors volunteer their time and offer virtual synchronous and asynchronous training and guidance in areas like journalism, finance, the arts, educational paths, career coaching, technology, entrepreneurship, and so much more. Each mentor shares their knowledge, teaches skills, and helps to foster personal and professional growth for those 18 and older. MENTEE assures that people and communities receive the support and training they need to accelerate their success, help each individual feel better about their future, and create a healthier world.

    MENTEE Partners

    We work with businesses, institutions, and other nonprofits to form mentor and mentee partnerships. MENTEE allows you to connect with mentees from around the world who are marginalized or oppressed in their communities to fuel volunteerism in your organization and improve employee satisfaction and personal growth while giving our mentees access to top specialists. Or, we can help support the population you serve and your work by sharing our global mentor network and program so each individual has the training and guidance they need. Contact us to learn more :)

    What's with your logo?

    It's awesome, isn't it?

    Our logo icon is a West African adinkra and translated means, "He who does not know can know from learning." It's a symbol that represents life-long education and a continued quest for knowledge. Our vision, structure, and actions are all deeply rooted in the value of learning and the sharing of knowledge with all.
