Welcome to the Mentor and Mentee Learning Center

Newsfeed

Newsfeed will be the main landing page when you login to the Platform as a mentor. 

Occasionally throughout the year, an alert/reminder will pop up that will be required before you start using the Platform, for example an event invite or survey link. Simply fill it out and press "Confirm" or click "Remind me next time" if you're not ready.

After finishing any popup tasks, you'll be taken to the newsfeed page, which acts as the homepage of the Platform. Here you can view any past or upcoming tasks/announcements that you've received from your program manager. After all pop-ups have been dismissed, the page will look like this:

Click on the "Newsfeed" bell icon in the top menu bar to pull up a list of past tasks/announcements.

Types of Announcements

There are six types of tasks and announcements.

  1. Pop-up - This appears immediately upon logging in and requires an action before moving forward with the Platform. Clicking "Got it" will dismiss the pop-up forever. Clicking "Remind me next time" will close the notification temporarily, but it will appear again the next time you go to the Homepage.
  2. Banners - These show up at in chronological order on the Newsfeed, but don't require an action to continue using the Platform. 
  3.  Event Invites
    • Collecting RSVPs to events is an important part in the event planning process. The RSVP Task is automatically created once a pair is invited to an event. The event invite will contain all the critical information: event date and time, a location with a clickable link that opens a new tab in Google Maps allowing the user to get directions, and whether the user's match is planning on attending. Users can click the “I’m going.” button to RSVP Yes, the “I’m not going.” button to RSVP no, or the “I’m not sure yet.” button that will show the Task the next time the page is loaded.
    • If "I'm not going" is selected, users must add a comment explaining why they can't go.
  4. Surveys
    • Mentor and mentee surveys are distributed three times a year and will show up as a pop-up Task. The Survey Task shows once a user is invited to a survey, comes with an estimation of how long it will take, and links to the survey through the “Take the survey” button. The Task will close once a user clicks on the button, but the user must complete the survey to ensure the Task does not show up in the future.
  5. Pair Rater
    • The Pair Rater Task asks mentors and mentees to relate their relationship on a scale of 0 to 10, where 0 is no relationship at all and 10 is the best possible relationship. For reference, the Pair Rater Task also shows the user what their last rating was. This task shows up automatically every month once a pair is matched.
  6. Information Confirmation
    • Every now and again, iMentor will ask to confirm your information. This could range from your name to your email to your employer. We just want to make sure all our records are up to date and we have a place to reach you if needed!
  7. PSP Confirmation
    • In 12th grade, mentees and mentors will be asked if they want to participate in the Post-Secondary Pathway (PSP) program. Mentees will select from the following options:
      • None
      • 2 year college
      • 4 year college
      • Certificate/Vocational Training
      • Gap Year/Service Year Program
      • Military
      • Working
