Are you ready to become a Mentor?
We are looking for students from various backgrounds with insightful experiences and stories to share.
Our year-long academic program was intentionally designed to help students gain the confidence and skills they need to enter and rise in any field they choose.
Build confidence with us. Mentorship groups along with our international network of women and non-binary folks will give students the support and encouragement they need to take on new challenges.
Build a toolkit with us. Our team is committed to providing students with professional and leadership tools as well as opportunities to use them in practice.
Build a network with us. Throughout the academic year students will have a variety of opportunities to connect with peers, mentors and working professionals.
Our Primary Mentors are
Interested in impacting younger women and non-binary students
Excited to share their experiences with a cohort of mentees
Ready to learn and grow as a leader
Additionally Primary Mentors must be:
A third year undergraduate - graduate student at an accredited academic institution
Mentors for our Community College program must currently attend or have transferred from the community college where the program will be delivered
Primary Mentors will lead, facilitate and connect.
Share experiences and knowledge with a small cohort of students.
Primary Mentors will lead their mentorship group through the curriculum and guide them throughout the year.
3-5 first and second year undergraduate students
A Secondary Mentor (a professional in academia or industry)
Lead students through a prepared curriculum teaching practical professional & leadership tools.
Seven professional development and leadership sessions are held throughout the year. Every session features a brief talk from a Session Anchor who will tell their professional story. Primary Mentors then facilitate a discussion among the group. Each session will end with a Challenge to apply that week's practical tool.
Connect with other mentorship groups at other participating institutions.
Bridge seeks to connect its participants with a global support network of women and non-binary folks. Throughout the program Primary Mentors will connect their mentorship group with at least two other groups at different institutions.

“Having been someone who has not really had a mentor before, I have loved having to prepare for each session. I feel like I learn just as much as the mentees from the challenges being set.”
