Members Search Section
MentorCity recently introduced a new section called ‘Members’ which provides access to mentors and mentees in programs that support members to perform self-directed searches in order to network with one another – even if they are not in a mentoring relationship. This feature is helping to create a more dynamic and engaged mentoring community, where members can share resources, ask questions, and support each other's growth
For example, imagine a mentoring program holds an in-person event where mentors and mentees have the opportunity to connect and network. With the Members section feature, participants can continue their conversations and build relationships long after the event has ended, helping to create a stronger and more connected mentoring community. This feature is especially useful for those who may not have had the chance to connect in person, such as those who were unable to attend the event or who live in different locations. By facilitating ongoing communication and networking between members, we are helping to create a more engaged and supportive mentoring community that is better equipped to meet the needs of today's youth.
