Student Mentoring In Life and Education
MAIN QUESTION: How can we redesign the program to help facilitate more frequent & meaningful connections?
People who got involved after
People who were once proteges
Outdated matching software
Not well marketed to student body
Bad match up qualifiers
Doesn't consider mentor's own time constraints
Doesn't clearly identify individual student's needs
Mentors who report no matches
Not enough paid staff to oversee
Mentors not checking in with proteges enough or at all
56.5% of proteges indicated that they were contacted by their mentor just 0-5 times, indicating that they are not following up with their proteges on a regular basis
82% of proteges indicated they spent less than 30 minutes connecting with their mentor across all mediums
Nearly half of the mentors hired for a role within a program were not matched with a protege for a variety of reasons, including not substantial numbers of proteges to allow for matches
The training and expectations we set with our mentors is not reflective of how our proteges want to connect: 41.9% are looking for in-person connection with their mentor, while only 15.7% report ever meeting their mentor in-person
