Alphabettes Mentorship Program
Please fill in this form if you are you looking for career, industry or educational advice by professionals in the fields of type, typography, or the lettering arts; we will try to match you with mentor who can guide you to achieve your goals.
Please make sure you are committed to making the best use of this opportunity. Our mentors are volunteering their valuable time to guide others.
What will you do with my information?
We will keep the information you provide confidential but may share parts of it with potential mentors to find the right match for you. Please be patient, it may take a few days until you receive a reply.
How often will we meet?
You and your mentor will work out together how frequently, and when, you will connect. It can be anything from a one-off session to quarterly, monthly, or even more frequent meetings.
Where do we meet?
That’s up to you and your mentor as well. Meetings can happen online or in person. Our volunteers are spread across the globe. Some of us are in type-congested areas such as London, Berlin, New York City or the Bay Area where face-to-face meetings can be arranged more easily.
Who is eligible to apply as a mentee?
Although the program is open to everyone in our field, depending on demand, we may give preference to underrepresented groups.
What does it cost?
The organisation of the mentorship is at no cost, but also at no liability.
What’s the difference between a mentor and a consultant?
The idea is to provide guidance by experienced type and lettering professionals. It is not to be confused with free of charge consultancy. If you require more extensive business consulting or expert knowledge, you are welcome to get in touch with individual professionals:
What is your full name?
Where are you based?
Please introduce yourself. What is your background, what are your interests and where are you located?
What’s your email address?
What gender do you identify with?
Define your needs and expectations. What are your goals and how do you think a mentor can help you accomplish those goals?
Is there a person in particular you would like to be mentored by? (Be aware that we can’t guarantee she will be available. If your preferred mentor has to decline the request will try to find equally suitable alternatives.)
Do you prefer to be mentored by a person belonging to an underrepresented group?
Female mentors only, please.
A person of colour only, please.
Anything you’d like to add? Do you have any requirements or special requests?
