There are three types of mentoring.
Traditional One-on-one Mentoring
A mentee and mentor are matched, either through a program or on their own. Mentee-mentor partners participate in a mentoring relationship with structure and timeframe of their making or as established by a formal mentoring program.
A mentoring relationship in which the two parties (or group) are in different locations. Sometimes called “virtual” mentoring.
A single mentor is matched with a cohort of mentees. Initial program structure is provided while allowing mentor to direct progress, pace and activities.
