WHY BECOME A MENTOR?

It’s a minimal time commitment that can make a real impact on someone’s future – we think that’s worth doing!

Change lives

Being a Project Access mentor is incredibly fulfilling. Help other students from your community and pay it forward – you just might change someone’s life.

Easy-to-use platform

We provide you with the tools you need to be the mentor you wish you’d had. We will handle the administrative side, and leave the good karma for you to claim

Low time commitment

All of our mentors are very busy – and we understand that! To make sure you are not matched at the wrong time, we will give you the opportunity to opt out before you are given an applicant.

Unique network

Be part of one of the fastest-growing social enterprises in the world (while gaining some CV points) and help us make a real difference!

WANT TO HELP US FIGHT INEQUALITY IN HIGHER EDUCATION?

Learning potential is equally distributed, but access to top academic institutions is not. Together, we can fight these inequalities by passing on all our hard-earned lessons to the next generation of prospective applicants and help those who would otherwise rarely apply to, gain admission for or succeed at top universities.

 

When you sign up as a mentor, we’ll keep you in our database and provide you with a set of guiding materials. When a prospective applicant asks for help, we match you via email so that you can share your story, exchange tips, and give feedback on their application. We match people with similar backgrounds and academic interests so that you can truly act as a role model to your mentee. We provide you with the platform, background and information you need – as well as ongoing support. It doesn’t have to be time-consuming, but we promise it will be rewarding.

100% Retention

All of our successful applicants have become mentors themselves – amplifying our impact!

Flexible

Together with your mentee, you decide when and how to communicate – to fit both your busy schedules.

Online

All mentoring happens online (Skype, FaceTime, email etc.) – so you can help from wherever you like!

Community

Help us build an awesome community of passionate, driven people with Project Access!
