The Challenge: To create a campaign that supports a social cause and brings together a local community. How can we encourage young women to apply for mentorships and create lasing connections in the community that will nurture them in their career?
The Solution: An organization and app, called Mentoo, would be created out of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. Mentoo would allow young women to create a profile and apply for a mentorship in their local area, depending on their career interests. Based on their application choices they would be matched with a local mentor in their industry of choice, who they could be mentored by.
Interested graduates can also use the app to apply to become a mentor, using a similar process. The app can be used to submit applications, interact with your mentors, schedule meetups, track hours spent, find events through Mentoo and journal memories together.
