For Mentors and Mentees
Mentors can join multiple mentoring groups. By joining a mentorship group you will be available to receive a mentorship request from potential mentees. The mentoring group manager may recommend or create mentorships with mentee members of your group. Mentors can contribute to the mentoring group posts and events. Share an experience you had in your professional career or offer practical advice to mentees in the group posts area.
Become a mentor and develop your mentoring and leadership development skills. HomeClass Nigeria will identify the best available match to your group manager and potential mentees based on your experience and the skills the mentee wishes to develop.
Mentees may send you a mentorship request from time to time and you can decide to accept or decline a mentorship. Interact with your mentee using My Mentorships to create meetings and activities, project feedback, and pose questions in the live chat area to your mentee.
Engage in activities with Mentees
- Engage in open chat with your mentee using My Mentorships.
- Identify a project that will challenge your mentee in the selected skills development areas.
- Invite your mentee to a professional conference.
- Invite your mentee to your place of work for a team or professional one-to-one meeting.
- Create opportunities for your mentee to collaborate on or to plan and develop a project. This should be detailed in the mentorship area.
- Outline some real life professional challenges you have experience in your career and ask your mentee how they would deal with similar challenges.
- It is important to maintain as much interactivity as possible throughout your mentorship.

Mentorship guidelines for Mentees
Mentoring is a voluntary relationship between an experienced professional and a less experienced professional in a chosen career or skill area. Mentors often get as much out of a mentoring relationship as the mentee. The open communications between the mentor and mentee can lead to a greater level of insight into a skill, career path or problem area. Mentoring is a two-way learning process where the mentee is encouraged to share a thought, idea or concept.
