*** All year applications for Spring and Autumn terms ***
Thank you for showing an interest in the Alphabettes Mentorship Program! Throughout the year, we are actively seeking available Mentors to share their valuable insight during our annual spring and autumn terms.
Fill in this form to take an active part as a Mentor for students, newcomers, and experienced professionals seeking guidance in the fields of type, typography, or the lettering arts. Apply when it is convenient for you. There is no need to reapply for future terms, even if you have not yet heard from us.
Our goal is to improve opportunities for people at every level, by connecting Mentees with Mentors who can share their knowledge and experience to give guidance. We emphasise that Mentors are not expected to provide consultation or private tuition. The bulk of Mentees ask for portfolio, career, or educational guidance. Some Mentees simply look for a sounding board or an opportunity to discuss type related topics, and understand how they can get more involved in the wider community. Periodically, we check in to ensure everyone is still happy with the arrangement and encourage both the Mentor and the Mentee to contact us if the relationship is not working for some reason.
Since Alphabettes supports and promotes the work of all women in our fields, every pairing centres a woman as either Mentee or Mentor (or both). Although the program is open to everyone in our field, we may fast-track pairings for women and underrepresented groups. Specific needs for Mentors or Mentees may be accommodated upon request, such as woman-to-woman pairings.
