Getting Started

Getting Started

Step 1. Complete your registration

On ensure you finish the mentor training, sign the consent form, complete background check (US only), and fill out your profile (bio and a photo).

Step 1a. Join Mentor Slack (optional, but highly encouraged)

An easy way to connect with the Technovation team and mentors around the world, your new community! You'll find announcements, get to ask questions around the program, advice about being a mentor, help finding a co-mentor, and more! Join here and check out our Slack guide.

Step 2. Find a team to mentor!

You can search for teams in your region/timezone and send requests to join the team. Make sure your profile is complete so the team can get to know you a bit before they accept your invite.

Step 3. Review the curriculum, pre-season checklist and schedule your first team meeting

Kick off the season by reviewing the pre-season checklist! In your first email include the mentor communication form for parents to sign. Remember: the curriculum is your handbook for coaching teams through the season.
