MENTORSHIP CERTIFICATION FAQS

  • What it is
    • Created in association with MentorLoop & OJJDP’s MENTOR program, this practical approach to mentorship training focuses on results-based techniques & best practices. The certification requires 20 mentor-hours as well as successful completion of all lessons, course materials and hands-on assignments in a real world environment.
  • Who it’s for
    • The Mentorship Certification program was designed to provide a hands-on, practical approach to mentorship best practices for women who wish to lend their support and experience to the guidance of others, either as part of their career/profession, an expression of altruism, or, more commonly, both.
  • What it Covers
    • The Mentorship Certification program covers everything you need to for successful and effective mentoring. Course lessons include: Mentorship Basics, Motivation Techniques, How to Craft Mentor Sessions, and Mentor Pairing.

  • How it Works
    • This program includes weekly classes, a Mentor Bio in our Community Directory, 20 hours of paired mentee sessions, & is designed to be completed in 16 weeks. Each mentor will be paired with one or more participants of the Pave the Path to Success program & will be featured in our Community Directory so mentees can find and connect with a Certified Mentor.
  • Continued Success
    • In addition to receiving Mentor Certification, you will also have the opportunity to create and host your own Circle Challenge at HBICHQ.com to demonstrate & share your skills, & reach potential mentees. This is especially beneficial for those who wish to continue with educational mentorship or pursue mentoring or coaching as a career path. Hosting for the Circle Challenge is limited to Certified Mentors, in order to help continue their leadership experience, provide a platform for their voice, & help them reach potential clients and mentees.
