Online mentoring programs – how to get involved

The online mentoring program with icouldbe.org has proven its success. To get your school involved in this program isn’t difficult.

All icouldbe mentor programs are embedded in school classrooms. There are costs involved in offering these programs.

To manage these costs, icouldbe.org will work with a local public school to identify a business partner / foundation who will help cover the expenses of the program.

For example, icouldbe has partnered with eTrade Financial, which sponsors 650 kids each year in the towns where their employees work. Employees act as mentors and cover the costs of the program, making it a meaningful mentor program.

icouldbe works with the school to find the funding partner, then will help manage the program, including providing technical and program support to make sure students get the most out of the e-mentoring program.

It takes two training sessions to train the teacher who will deliver the program. They then register the kids who then select their mentors and get to work!
