Here’s how the S.W.O.T Mentorship Program works:

  • Mentor and Mentee must commit to a twelve-month program.

  • The mentor candidate will be contacted for an informal assessment and more information about the program and the matching process.

  • Mentor and Mentee must meet at least 6 hours per month which includes group program activities.

  • Mentees will be expected to initiate communication with their mentor. Meetings can be in person, phone conversation, via zoom, etc. What’s convenient to both women, and to begin each session prepared and ready to grow.

 

We serve women of many faith backgrounds, though we can’t guarantee specific matches in areas of faith, business experience, location, or other.

If you are a professional woman of faith who desires to volunteer your time and talent to mentoring, we welcome you to submit your application here beginning May  2021.
