Vygo Mentor Profile Requirements and Process

When you join a program as a mentor for the first time, you will need to complete all the mandatory profile fields including - About Me, Availability, Languages and Profile Picture.

Mentor Profile Requirements

Good Profile Picture

A nice, clear photo of your face. The photo needs to allow the mentee to recognise you when you meet up in person or online. A good quality, vibrant photo also increases your chances of getting bookings.

Appropriate 'About Me'

You need to include enough information about your qualifications, hobbies and experience that mentees feel comfortable booking a session with you. We also check for spelling and grammatical errors. Some institutions require certain details in your about me - if so, it is important to understand what these are by contacting your Program Manager.

Informative Availability

Your availability needs to include accurate information to assist your mentees when requesting sessions with you. Please ensure you tick the days and time slots that you are free as this will be the slots for which students could book you on.

For example:
