Become a Mentor

Are you an experienced professional with a sense of commitment and desire to give back?
Are you looking for a highly-rewarding volunteer experience? 
Do you want to share your knowledge and expertise?

Become a YES Mentor

Mentorship services at YES make the transfer of knowledge and wisdom from an experienced professional (a mentor) to a younger colleague (a mentee) possible. The mentor acts as a guide, a role model and advisor to a mentee, who is willing to learn from the mentor’s experiences in order to develop their career or business. 

The Human Library is a new, quick access online database of experienced professionals that YES clients can use to connect with a volunteer for career or business development guidance.

These connections can be one-off informational conversations, or longer-term mentoring relationships can be pursued when both parties express an interest.

Connections can be made in-person, online, by telephone or via email. The YES Mentorship Coordinator facilitates communications between parties and is a source of support throughout the mentoring process.

Here at YES, we value the contribution of our volunteers and try to foster community amongst our mentors. Regular networking and training sessions are offered to mentors so they can engage with their peers, share ideas and benefit from each other’s experience.
If you have knowledge and experience that could be useful to a job seeker, entrepreneur or artist, then join us and become part of the Human Library as an advisor! Fill in the form below and we will get the ball rolling…
