Help a new parent unleash their inner
“I've got this.”

Are you a parent in the Seattle Area who loves to support other parents? Do you have a computer, internet access, and about an hour a week to give? If so, read on. 

What does a Mentor do?

Mentors are the judgment-free co-pilots for every new parent. Mentors volunteer from their own computers on their own time. Each week Mentors start conversations with Members on the topics that help them handle the ups and downs of new parenthood, by offering validation, personal story sharing, and connection to the accurate information and resources Members need to thrive in their parenting role.

How do I become a Mentor?

The first step is to complete the online application. You'll answer some questions about yourself, your own experience becoming a parent, and provide two references (people who can speak to what an awesome person you are, like a neighbor or a good friend). We’ll contact you in one to two weeks. If you’re selected, we’ll link you to the online Mentor Training. When your references are checked and you've completed the training, you can be matched with your first Members!

What’s the time commitment? 

Mentors support 5 to 10 Members in just one to two hours each week and commit to filling their role for one year.

What kind of support can I expect? 

Mentors have access to an expansive community of other Mentors from across the Greater Seattle Area. Mentors grow skills and make connections on the private Mentor Facebook Group and at monthly virtual Mentor gatherings. The Nurture® team provides full support through the Mentor journey.  

Here’s how it works.
