YOUR BIO DESCRIPTION 

Describe yourself, your experience, and how your expertise can help your Mentees get clear, and achieve their goals. 

  • Tip: 

Try to highlight your main strengths in bullet points. Make it clear and easily identifiable for Mentees to understand what you bring to the table. Feel free to use emojis and special characters if you want to delimitate the sections of your bio.

YOUR INTRO VIDEO

1- 3 min video

  • All Mentors are required to upload a 1- 3 min video introducing themselves and giving Mentees a glimpse into who they are and how they can help.

Tip: 

The system will only allow you to block time. It does not allow you to manually input sessions as these are automatically populated when Mentees book sessions with you.

HOW TO DELIVER GREAT MENTORSHIP 

If you're here, it means we have no doubt in your ability to offer outstanding mentorship to our community. 

This mini-guide is on how to keep track of your Mentee's journey, challenges, and progress so you can prepare and maximize each session accordingly:
 

  • Keep a spreadsheet of your sessions and update it regularly. Take notes after each session so you can see the big picture.

 

  • Discuss specific scenarios with other Mentors and see if you can collectively find better solutions to help your Mentees. Please make sure you keep Mentee's identity private

 

  • Prepare for the sessions. You can prepare for the sessions by checking your spreadsheet and refreshing your memory on each case.

 

  • Block plenty of buffer time. You know your limit and your pace so please remember to prepare accordingly. You can block time off your calendar directly from your Wix dashboard, or you can contact your Account Manager to edit your default availability.

What is the Open Arms Foundation?

Upon signing up, you will have the opportunity to donate some or all of your proceedings to the Open Arms Foundation.

Open Arms Foundation is an initiative developed by Bifound and our partners, to ensure we support young people in remote locations develop leadership skills, and spark a positive change in their own communities.

We currently work with a variety of organizations in North Africa and want to extend our services beyond this area.

As a Mentor, you are not obliged to donate or get involved in any way, however, your support can make a huge difference and is highly appreciated not only by us but also by the families we are supporting.

Mentors' donation statuses (if they choose to donate) will be displayed next to their badge and be visible to other members on the platform. This is because the work that we do at Bifound is much bigger than us and our community loves to know they are also supporting this bigger picture.
