Mentor screening and matching

Core Component

The process of screening and matching prospective mentors with potential mentees is an important preliminary step to ensure a meaningful mentor-mentee relationship can be fostered.

Flexible activities include:

Screening mentors ensures they are ‘fit for task’ and can work with the targeted mentee population. Identification of preferences from both a mentee and mentor facilitates appropriate matches and can identify common interests or priority areas to be addressed in the mentoring relationship. Matches that consider gender, age, ethnicity and culture, geographical location and common interests and preferences place the mentoring relationship in the best possible position for long-term success.
