Benefits of becoming a mentor

Benefits to Becoming a Mentor

Knowing that you have made an invaluable difference in a youth’s future cannot be matched. Our mentors help build self-confidence, increase employment rates, and enhance professional and life skills that remain useful throughout the rest of the mentee’s life.

The GMI mentorship program is also a valuable cultural and educational experience for mentors to learn and grow professionally and personally. As a mentor, you expand your ability to train and lead others, increase your cultural competency through conversation with a student from a different culture, increase your ability to form professional relationships with international colleagues and companies, and overall feel a sense of accomplishment after completing the program.

How to Become a Mentor

The most important qualification to be a mentor is the desire to share what you have learned and give an opportunity to a young person who is just starting out.

GMI provides everything you need to guide your mentee. You don’t need to be an expert, just follow the Mentor Guide and add your own personal experience.

Mentor candidates will complete a brief online application, phone interview and pass a background check independently conducted through Sterling Volunteers.

Mentor candidates should be at least 25 years old, have a BA/BS in their chosen field and will complete a brief online training course to help them prepare for the program.

Mentors can be sponsored through a business, an industry association, or apply independently.
