About the program & why you should become a Mentor
What is the Rudderly Mentorship Program?
Rudderly Mentorship program aims to answer the basic question that hundreds of people face everyday- “How to realise my potential professionally".
What is the curriculum or structure of the program?
There isn't a set curriculum, since each mentee may have a different challenge that they need help with, one may be starting off their career, while others may be pivotting their career after a decade of working.
- Understand what motivates them & what they want from their careers
- Give them an overview of the career
- Solving a real-world assignment
What is the duration of the mentorship program?
Each mentorship is conducted over 2 sessions of 1.5 hour each. All mentorship sessions will be conducted on Zoom video conferencing. After 2 sessions, your mentor obligation with Rudderly (for that spcific mentee) is over.
How much of time must I commit?
Each mentorship session is for a minimum of an hour but typically stretches to 1.5 hours. Normally a successful mentorship would last for a min. of 4-6 sessions, with a gap of 10days between sessions.
What is the minimum qualification to become a mentor?
While selecting mentors, we look at the professional experiences, challenges overcome and success acheieved as a baseline to accept Mentors. Typically, mentors have a min. of 5 years of experience.
Does a mentor get paid ?
Yes, mentors can choose to an honorarium for their time. A mentee is charged dynamically from Rs. 1500 upto Rs. 8,000 per hour. Rudderly retains 30% as their commission.
I’d love to join. Now what?
We are delighted to have you on board! The first step would be to fill up the form linked above and someone from our team will get in touch with you shortly.
What if I want to mentor pro-bono?
One of the reasons we charge the members for mentorship is so that they take the sessions seriously and come prepared. If you would like to not receive payment, we have tied up with three NGOs - Urja Trust (Rehabilitating Homeless women), The Last Wilderness (Environment), The Welfare of Stray Dogs (Animal care) - from which you can choose one to donate your payment to. We will send you a donation certificate as proof of contribution.
Mentors can choose to automatically donate their proceeds from mentorship to one of our partner NGOs

The platform is such a wonderful initiative to ignite curious minds. I wish there was something like this when I was stuck between crossroads on where to go with my career.
Nothing in my life prepared me for my first mentorship session at Rudderly. As a Business Developer, I have spoken at large public conferences on many occasions. However, a personal, in depth insight was another ball game altogether and one that I wish had been there when I trying to figure my career.
I've enjoyed myself hugely being a Rudderly mentor. It was an eye opener to engage with next gen X to hear how they think and what their ambitions are. I enjoyed sharing my experiences as a journalist with my mentee and hope to do so again .
