What is a mentor?

A mentor is a person who is already been where you want to go. A mentor is not a professional consultant, but a person with a wealth of experience who can help you achieve your goal. Mentors usually have many years of experience, are successful entrepreneurs, managers or experts and are open about sharing personal ups and downs as well as valuable strategies from their own lives.

How are mentors qualified?
We place great importance on a rigorous qualification of our mentors. Our team personally checks each mentor application based on experience, expertise, proven successes and social competency. We also interview each of our mentors in person. Following a successful application, mentors may officially register and create their profiles on the platform. Furthermore, we ensure that our mentors also receive sufficient support after their signup so that no mentor enters into a mentoring relationship unprepared.

Can I be both a mentor and a mentee?
This is certainly possible – moreover, we welcome it! However, the criteria for being a mentor must be met regardless. Becoming a mentor is only possible following a successful qualification by the Mentor Lane team.
Do the mentors receive compensation?

Volunteer mentoring is at the forefront of Mentor Lane and therefore, each mentor offers Free Mentoring. Mentors and Mentees are welcome to make further agreements, however, this happens would take place outside of Mentor Lane. 

Mentor Lane is an institutional member of the German Association for Mentoring e.V. (DGM). The DGM ensures and safeguards quality standards in mentoring.
