Notes about the Mentor Application

Thank you for your interest in being an FWE Mentor. The next round of mentorship will start in Spring 2019 (as early as late February to get working with a Mentee and as late as early May) and our Mentor Program Manager will be reaching out before then to discuss your background + mentorship preferences.

The information collected will be reviewed by the FWE Mentor Program. To successfully find you a match, FWE will disclose relevant information from this form to potential Mentees to better understand if there is a fit. We will balance your areas of interest and strengths to the needs of Mentees. Therefore, we may not have a match for you this year, as we want to make sure that the pairings make sense for both parties.

PLEASE NOTE: Survey Monkey does not allow you to save your application and come back to it later. This application will take approx. 5 minutes (or less if you're speedy!) to fill out.

If you have any questions about the Mentor Program or the application, please contact the FWE team at 604-682-8115.
