How do you begin as an e-mentor?
Starting on November 16, 2011, WIT is ready for you to register for our e-mentoring program to benefit a group of 200 9th grade, Black male students from Philadelphia district and charter schools. WIT, powered by a web-based mentoring platform created by icouldbe.org, will engage mentors and mentees in structured activities focused on online safety, time management and study skills, internet literacy, building work experience, and explorations of different career paths.

WHAT IT TAKES MENTOR REGISTRATION
Your application has to be approved before you can log in. To be approved as a mentor we have to get a background check clearance (the Trufina process you went through is the background check portion of our application) and that usually takes anywhere from a day to a week. It takes longer if there's an issue with verifying your identity – for example, if you've recently moved. Most clean results come back within 2 days.
Do note that Trufina does not need a social security number in order to process your background checks.
Here is a link that explains the Trufina process.

Please spread the word and help us to recruit additional mentors by sharing this opportunity with your friends or networks. Help us to retain others to be a part of a team of successful African-American males providing critical mentoring and coaching support to encourage and motivate young men towards success.
What It Takes (WIT) is a national outreach initiative that connects highly successful minority entrepreneurs, scientists, professional athletes, businessmen, military and medical professionals with hundreds of African-American males at risk of dropping out of high school. The mission of the program is to engage and motivate students towards success in their academic and professional endeavors. WIT is building upon these connections by establishing an e-mentoring component to the program. E-mentoring is a caring, structured relationship focused on the needs of the mentored participants that uses technology to connect people across time and/or distance. It provides greater flexibility for the mentee and mentors, enabling even those with constrained schedules to give back in a very big way.
