We encourage you to motivate your participants and provide a helpful list of resources to guide them through your program. For cohort-based programs, we recommend mapping out a timeline of key dates and events that can work alongside your mentoring program. For example, you may want to curate your reading list based on the following stages in a mentoring journey:

  • Post-launch (Getting Started)
  • Post match (Matching)
  • Ongoing mentoring (Gaining Momentum)

Post Launch

As participants join the program, As participants join the program, it's important to maintain their excitement after they've signed up and remind them why joining was a good idea. This can be achieved by providing resources and guides that explain what mentoring is all about, both for mentors and mentees. By doing so, participants can have a better understanding of what to expect from the program and how to use Mentorloop effectively.



If you have Self Match enabled, consider including how participants can find a mentor or a mentee as part of the reading list. 

Post Match

Now that participants have been matched, our goal is to help them kickstart their mentoring relationships, reduce any nerves they may have when meeting their mentor/mentee for the first time, and ensure that they establish a good foundation in the early stages of their relationships.



Ongoing Mentoring

After receiving the first MQS responses from your participants, it may be a good time to update your recommended reading with resources to increase engagement and maintain momentum. A great tip is to include any important internal events that are relevant to the mentoring participants.
