Virtual Mentoring Portal Participation Interest Form

To ensure physical distancing does not mean social disconnection, two leading experts on mentoring launched the Virtual Mentoring Portal. The Virtual Mentoring Portal is a safe and monitored mentoring platform for mentors and mentees to continue their relationships while they may be separated due to COVID-19. iCouldBe, one of the leading experts on virtual mentoring in the U.S. since 2000, and MENTOR, the nation’s field and movement leader for youth mentoring for the last 30 years joined forces to develop this free tool. The Virtual Mentoring Portal provides structured, research-back curriculum, email and chat functionality to provide mentoring programs with virtual mentoring access for existing mentees ages 13 or older, and their mentors. The platform has been constructed with respect to best practices, safety, and data privacy.

The Virtual Mentoring Portal free offer for the 2020-2021 has been filled and there are no additional free slots left at this time. iCouldBe has raised enough funds to be able to offer iCouldBe to new partners for a minimum of $3,000 for up to 25 mentees and $125 per mentee-mentor match after that (a savings of $375 per match). We can only provide this opportunity to a limited number of matches and hope to expand this offering to more organizations throughout the Fall.
