As a program manager, dedicating your time and energy to running a program can seem intimidating, but all that hard work translates into something far greater than yourself.
We’re here to tell you that running a successful mentorship program is definitely attainable!
To help you build, maintain and scale your program, we’ve prepared a few tips on how to run a successful mentorship program 🌟
What does success look like?
When inviting members, it’s important to let them know the goal of the program in relation to themselves.
This helps set expectations early for both mentors and mentees, and helps them identify more with their mentorship program.
You can add this information to your program's landing page, but to really get the message across: send your members an announcement and let them know more about the program.
To learn more about how to send an announcement, check out this article.
💡 Take advantage of announcements to remind mentees to schedule their first sessions.
Monitor and manage
It's always best to take a moment and identify participants who haven't been engaging as expected, and to find out why.
To identify mentees with a low session count, head over to the Reporting tab and scroll down to Sessions per users.
From here, you can see which mentees have had the least amount of sessions. Consider sending them a message to prompt them to book, mentor suggestions or mentorship tips.
