The Success Plan is an activity your mentee has access to that helps them plan out their future goals. It takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.
We encourage all students to complete the Success Plan and share it with their mentors. If your mentee has not spoken to you about their Success Plan, we recommend you begin a conversation about it! It may also be helpful if you complete a Success Plan together.
On the left is a test copy of the Success Plan that you can fill out too.
Tips for a Successful Mentorship
The video on the right covers some key elements of creating a successful mentoring relationship.
- Meet regularly, at least once a month.
- Use conversation guides if they apply to you and your mentee. They have resources and ways of talking about many different topics.
- Report your conversations. It takes 45-60 seconds!
- Be ready to learn. As much as your mentee will be learning from you, have an open mind towards learning from them too-- it's a partnerhsip.
