#walk1000miles mentorship: Would you appreciate some 1-to-1 support?

Would you appreciate some one-to-one support, advice or encouragement? Have you got experience or skills you'd love to share to help someone achieve or overcome something?

We've added an experimental mentorship program to the #walk1000miles Facebook group so you can get or give support to another member of our community.

How the program works

You sign up, match yourself with a partner, and get helpful conversation starters each week so you get to know each other better. It's up to you how much time you want to spend together and what goals you want to work towards.

Why are we doing this?

We know lots of people have already derived great benefit from the connections they've made in the group, and if we can help the spirit of #walk1000miles help more people by connecting them, then it's worth a try.

Who’s taking part?

Mentorship is open to anyone, and already there are 50 volunteer mentors signed up. You can read more about them and the areas they feel qualified to mentor in at the mentoring home page.
