eMentor is a cutting-edge online mentoring program designed for the military community. We connect individuals for dynamic mentoring experiences that powerfully move them forward in their personal and professional lives by connecting them to a community of individuals and resources that cultivates personal connection and growth. Our Program facilitates one-on-one, peer, and group mentoring relationships that connect proteges with leaders in the military, civilian/private sector, federal government, and entrepreneurs and business owners to learn and develop that ultimately helps you expand your network, gain new knowledge and insights, build new skills and maintain a sense of community and support within the military network.
How does it work?
There are various ways to utilize eMentor to meet your needs. Your eMentor experience is completely customizable and begins by completing an online profile and thoughtfully evaluating your capabilities, limitations, goals and aspirations. From there, proteges can access our resources and connect with their peers and mentors in various ways, such as, one-on-one long term mentoring, flash mentoring which happens in a Q&A style setting, group mentoring where you can get feedback alongside multiple individuals, or interact in our public forums to solicit advice in a public setting. All proteges will be able to search for and select a peer or mentor that accurately aligns with the individual's life plan. Once a mentor accepts a protege's invitation to connect, the relationship begins. In long term relationships, pairs will work together to establish goals, develop an action plan and measure progress, while more expeditious mentoring can start and end with one phone call or meeting. Program participants can communicate in various ways from online video conferencing, phone calls, emails, and even meeting in person.
Turn a lifetime of experience into the experience of a lifetime.
