Mentee Application
Policy for admissions:

The TMP Mentoring Program seeks to select a diverse group of female sailors who are wanting to progress their sailing to the top of their game.

There are no tuition fees for programme participation although mentees are responsible for any associated costs they may incur (phone, travel, etc.). You can apply to be both a mentor and a mentee.

Eligibility criteria:

The TMP Mentoring Program Selection Committee will choose mentees using the following guidelines:
• Demonstrated passion and commitment to the sport
• Current and potential sailing achievements
• Strength of character, motivation and commitment to goals.
• Intention to participate fully in the TMP Mentoring Programme, as well as a commitment to promoting the experience.
• Candidates are judged, in part, on their ability to leverage and maximize the mentorship programme over time. Short-term and long-term goals will be taken into consideration.
• Applicants must have English proficiency. Mentor/mentee matches will accommodate language preferences, where possible.
