How do the matches happen?It is a process that starts with the program launch! Participants meet at the mentorship program launch, which takes place at a central location in Edmonton or over Zoom on a weeknight. Protégés and mentors have the opportunity to meet with all the participants at the launch, discuss what their goals are, and then choose who the best match would be for them in a speed-rotation format. At the end of the evening, mentors and protégés rank their choices, and interVivos makes the final matches in the weeks following. The match information is then emailed out to the participants.
How often do you meet with your match?Mentors and protégés are welcome to meet as often as they would like, but we require at least three in-person or virtual meetings during the 6-month program. interVivos performs check-ins throughout the 6-month program and provides resources to assist. Some participants continue to meet and stay in touch, but that is not an expectation of interVivos.
Do we collaborate with other organizations?Yes! We have worked with the Edmonton Heritage Council and Volunteer Alberta's Youth @ the Table initative. Send us an email if you’d like to work together.
How can I learn more about the terminology your mentorship program uses?If you come across a word on our website that you are not familiar with, refer to our handy mentorship glossary.
How can I find out about the next launch?You can sign up for our mailing list, and/or follow us on social media. We are always looking for mentors. Email us to find out more.
