BUILDING POSITIVE LEADERS
We connect current athletes with former collegiate and professional athletes to provide assistance with leadership and personal development.
What we offer
Many of our Game Changers benefited from having mentors to help them along their journey. Our mentorship program focuses on establishing supportive relationships between current and former athletes to create positive long term outcomes. For athletes who struggle with academics, time management, or character issues having a mentor who holds them accountable can make all the difference.
The GCF Mentorship program offers athletes, from middle school to retired, the opportunity to enhance their development by becoming an mentee or a mentor. Our mentorship programs are completely FREE.
Mentorship provides an incredible opportunity for both mentee and mentors to learn from one another’s experience.
Studys show that having a mentor can lead to lower dropout rates, increased confidence, and more. Mentors are required to connect with their mentees at least once a month.
How does the Mentorship Program work?
GCF has partnered with a third-party mentoring software platform, MentorCity, to provide free online mentoring for Athletes. At different stages of your life, you will need advice on diverse topics, depending on your personal life, career path, and specific projects. At other times, you may be perfectly positioned to help someone else by sharing your expertise and experience. MentorCity creates a community that enables these mentoring give-and-take relationships. The website offers matches of mentees to mentors based on your selected filters of priority, including specific positions, skills, gender, and more. Use the MentorCity link at the bottom of the page to create your profile with MentorCity and start matching with potential mentors/mentees.
