Is this mentorship program fully functioning? I have reached out to two mentors back on Jan 2017, and I have yet to be contacted back.

I get emails daily on potential matches. I think they may just been in a busy season. What do you need mentoring on?

Benita I encourage you to ask specific questions in this facility. Mentors are often too busy to take up that role but are happy to answer specific queries. All the best, Merydith

Thank you Merydith, I have asked specific questions. Supposedly with this mentor program we are supposed to be able to request and connect with a specific mentor according the industry you're interested in and then send them a request via message/email and wait for their response, that has not happened It has been year that I had requested two different mentors and I have yet to receive a response.

Tamika Mapp, Thank you. My understanding of this program is that you are able to connect with a mentor according to the industry you are interested in and build a relationship with and get guidance with your business.
