Jewish High Tech Community Mentor Program

Providing meaningful high quality mentorship experiences by focusing on professional development within the Jewish High Tech Community.

JHTC Program Overview

The JHTC Board of Directors is proud to announce the launch of the JHTC Mentor Program. This program is designed to establish meaningful mentor relationships between a mentor (someone with wisdom to share) and a mentee (someone who’s actively exploring ways to improve professionally). We invite all members of the extended JHTC and JHTC 2.0 community to apply to participate in the program. We ask that you approach the program with a minimum commitment in mind, and with your promise to be the best program participant you can be.

JHTC Mentor Program: The Pilot Phase

We will be conducting a limited pilot program with a small number of mentoring pairs in the Fall of 2016. The purpose of doing a pilot is to ensure we learn the best practices and understand the resources required to build a sustainable program in the long term. The pilot will last for three months. Pilot participants will be selected and matched based on information provided in a program application, a structured interview with someone from the mentor committee, and the ability to participate in the in­person pilot kick­off meeting. Please note that the deadline for applying to participate in the pilot program is Sunday, October 2nd. Upon completing the pilot in 2017, JHTC will launch a full scale mentor program that is expected to be open to a larger number of participants. If you apply for the pilot and are not selected ­ don’t be disappointed, there will be plenty of opportunity to participate when the full mentorship program launches!

Steps to Participate in the Pilot Program

  1. Complete the online application form before Sunday, October 2nd.
  2. Participate in a short pre­-program interview (phone or video conference).
  3. Attend a mandatory in­-person kick­off meeting (most likely October 27th or November 2nd)
  4. Commit to full participation with regular meetings with your partner for at least 3 months – November 7, 2016  to February 7, 2017
  5. Provide periodic feedback to the mentor committee on your experience.

Program Update:  The period for applying to participate in the JHTC mentor pilot is now closed.  Please watch for future announcements about the next application period.
