Our Philosophy

We ask mentors to address the technical, professional and personal needs of students. Here is more detail on each of these areas:

In addition to the three areas addressed above here are a few other items to consider.

Time Commitment

After being formally assigned a mentee we ask mentors to set up a time for an initial chat with their mentee to discuss their needs and generally get to know one another. After this initial meeting, we ask that our mentors check in with their mentee at least once a week to inquire about their progress and if the students have any issues.

VetsWhoCode is a virtual organization and Slack is the primary vehicle for communication and activity. We ask mentors to be available in Slack to students and to use slack as a way to check in with mentees on a weekly basis. Mentors and students may also use email or video chat to communicate with one another. Please work with your mentee to establish the best frequency and method of communication for you both.
