Students fill out a questionnaire and are matched based on their shared interests and preferences. Mentor Collective's online platform provides training and resources for student mentors and makes it easy for mentors and mentees to connect. A mentee and mentor may talk about choosing the right courses to stay on track for graduation; studying and staying focused; balancing academics with extracurriculars, networking and other responsibilities; and more.

Students involved in Mentor Collective programs at peer institutions speak to the benefits of mentoring.
David, Mentor: "My experience with Mentoring is one of a kind. I think it's important that we're there for others who are just coming into the college experience or are already in it. We are still finding ourselves and the passions and talents we all have within us. What makes this experience all the more meaningful and important is that each and everyone has something unique inside of them and they may lose track of that talent when too much stress is on their plate. Having someone to talk to and knowing how to manage yourself with preoccupations is important and vital. I'm glad to be here for those I can help and those who need the assistance, small or large."
Brittany, Mentor: "My mentoring experience at Mentor Collective has been exceptional. The modules and resources available on the website help guide me to becoming a better mentor. So far, I have been connected with two mentees and they're wonderful matches. It feels great to mentor freshmen so they do not have to make the same mistakes or go through the same struggles as I have."
