Equals6, an organization focused on connecting students with scholarships, connections and career opportunities, today announced the availability of Students2Mentors, a new cloud-based platform that streamlines the creation and management of mentorship programs.
The platform is designed to allow colleges and universities to empower students and engage alumni, serving as the online hub for the entire mentorship process, from program creation and matchmaking through to success measurement.
“When working with alumni relations professionals and student career counsellors, we heard repeatedly about how complex it can be to set up and run a mentorship program,” said Andy Osburn, president and CEO of Equals6.
“We identified a need to move away from the use of spreadsheets and custom software to an online solution that’s efficient and easy to use. With Students2Mentors, an organization can get a program up and running in less than a day. The platform’s automation and self-service features save administrators time and effort, while ensuring a convenient and straightforward experience for mentors and students.”
Students2Mentors features customizable templates for setting up programs, an intelligent profile matching engine to connect students and mentors, meeting tracking, and automated email reminders and updates. The platform also allows for the creation of reports that show the progress of the program against customizable benchmarks. As a cloud-based, mobile-optimized solution, users can access Students2Mentors from any web browser, including tablets and smartphones.
Students2Mentors offers three affordable monthly packages and a free 30-day trial. VisitWWW.STUDENTS2MENTORS.COM for more information.
