#ICANHELP Leadership Initiative
Support student achievement and professional development by becoming a mentor
Become a Mentor!
Our mentors support and guide the students’ work while providing new opportunities for learning, professional development, and growth.
We have two mentor roles: Committee Mentors and Specialized Mentors.
Read on to learn which role is right for you.
Become a mentor for one of our eight student-led committees: Public Relations, Recruiting, International Recruiting, Digital Media, Graphic Design, Video Production, Marketing, and Content Creation. Committee mentors provide feedback, guidance, and project support on monthly team calls, design short lessons and workshops for professional development, and are available via email for additional help.
Become a specialized mentor and support our student volunteers when they need help with a specific project or event! You’ll form one-on-one relationships with students, and it’s an ideal role for mentors who want to help but can’t commit to joining a committee.
Why become a mentor?
Our students are intelligent, eager, dedicated, and visionary. They need inspiring people to mentor them and help them grow. Mentors do so much more than provide advice—they challenge mentees to seize opportunities, get uncomfortable, and reach further to develop critical professional skills. As a mentor, you’ll have the opportunity to share your stories, experiences, and lessons as you foster your mentees’ development. Now’s your chance to take your skills and expertise and use them to lift up the next generation.
Who can become a mentor?
We all have the power to make a positive impact on students’ lives, and we’re looking for professionals who want to pay it forward and inspire the next generation of leaders and changemakers. We do ask that anyone interested in becoming a mentor have at least three years of professional experience.
How do I become a mentor?
