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: http://www.alphabettes.org/about/ or http://yesequal.us/
