MentorNet aims to provide STEM students with high quality mentors. Pairs communicate 15-20 minutes weekly during MentorNet’s four-month mentoring cycle. Pairs are guided by a series of discussion topics, delivered automatically each week. Participants communicate through MentorNet chat messages.
During registration as a mentor you can choose topics that you are willing to discuss with your mentee such as: sexual orientation issues, women in STEM issues and dual career issues. The website provides recommended on-line training for both mentors and mentees.
