How we work

Mentoring is project based. Most of the work is 1on1 between the mentor & their mentees in our office, but we have group activites for mentors & students as well.

We're looking for mentors for our mentor pool. If you get in, we'll match you with potential mentees and you can decide how many you take on. Your onboarding will happen at the end of August, & mentoring students starts in September.

Equipment

We have Lenovo notebooks, strong wifi, a huge printer, flat screen TVs, projectors, whiteboards, flipcharts etc.

I'd miss the cheerful atmosphere of the office and the creative, inspiring people working here. I'd also feel the loss of Wednesday's yoga classes.
