Free Virtual Mentoring Portals
To ensure physical distancing does not mean social disconnection, leading experts on mentoring have launched free Virtual Mentoring Portals.
The Virtual Mentoring Portals are safe and monitored mentoring platforms for mentors and mentees to continue their relationships while they may be separated due to COVID-19.
iCouldBe, one of the leading experts on virtual mentoring in the U.S. since 2000, and MENTOR, the nation’s field and movement leader for youth mentoring for the last 30 years, joined forces to develop this free tool for students 13 and older. The Virtual Mentoring Portal provides unstructured (internal, monitored email) or structured (research-back curriculum) communications, and provides mentoring programs with virtual mentoring access for existing mentees and their mentors. The platform is constructed with respect to best practices, safety, and data privacy.
Virtual Mentoring for ages 12 and under
To ensure students 12 and under also have access to virtual mentoring in this moment, MENTOR has partnered with CricketTogether to expand the portal. CricketTogether provides a convenient, rewarding, and impactful approach to eMentoring: connecting mentors and students virtually across the U.S. in order to overcome geographic and socio-economic barriers.
