Mentee Application Form
Apply here to participate in Muslim Women Connect's Mentorship Program from April 2019 to September 2019.

Please read all of the information below carefully before applying.
Please note you must meet the following eligibility criteria to participate in the program:

1) You must be Muslim, female and aged 18-28 during the program.
2) You must live in London or live within a *commutable distance of London, if you live outside the city.
3) You must meet with your mentor face-to-face or through **Skype at least once a month for 6 months during the program.
4) You must attend all three of the masterclasses hosted by Muslim Women Connect, to facilitate your development during the program.

*Muslim Women Connect defines commutable as not exceeding more than 90 minutes in total. Please note that Muslim Women Connect will not reimburse any travel expenses incurred during the program.

**Skype matches between mentees and mentors may be created in exceptional circumstances, where a mentor is unable to meet with a mentee face-to-face and is the only suitable match for the mentee. Please note that only mentors are able to state a preference for Skype when they apply for the program.

Commitment to the program requires approximately 2-3 hours per month including travel. Please consider your current personal circumstances when applying.

If you are completing this application on a desktop, we recommend you read through the questions and fill these offline on a separate word document first, as this form will not save your answers while you write.

Situation Judgement Questions
Here are two real life situations that have taken place on our mentoring program. To assess your suitability for the program, we would like you to give us an honest answer of how you would respond to each situation.

Your answer
You have been sent an email by Muslim Women Connect, stating the date of your next obligatory employability skill masterclass. However, you forget to put this in your diary and accidentally make plans with your friend, who has booked expensive train tickets to visit you on the same day. What do you do? *
