Mentor-Editors are highly experienced editors and columnists who are committed to finally, once and for all, improving the diversity and quality of our national conversation.
The Mentor-Editor Program is our high-level, micro-mentoring volunteer program, in which experienced journalists connect with and give feedback to new and promising voices. The team includes over 85 media thought leaders at the highest levels, across all platforms—from editors to bloggers, from Genius grant winners to weekly columnists to war correspondents and Pulitzer Prize winners. On average, each Mentor-Editor spends 2.5 hours a month (or they can choose to mentor more or less frequently) working with a mentee, statistically doubling her odds of success.
