Through The Vine's Newsletter - Issue #4: IMPORTANT information regarding our Mentorship Program + future webinars
By Through The Vine • Issue #4 • View online
Hey everyone, this issue will be talking about BIG changes, so please read this thoroughly.
  1. As of September 20th, 2020, our Mentorship Program will be temporarily paused until Through The Vine is officially registered as a nonprofit organization. Once we’re registered, we’ll be able to do more thorough background checks on our volunteers. Though we’ve had no incidents, we prioritize safety and want to ensure that our mentees can feel safe when being matched with a mentor!
  2. While our Mentorship Program is on pause, we are considering hosting WEBINARS! Our mentors can sign up to be on a panel for recurring Zoom webinars, and students can attend to learn about their experiences and ask questions. It’s pretty similar to our mentorship program, but this way we will be able to facilitate interactions for the time being. Please fill out this form to let us know if you would be interested in these webinars, participating as either a high school student or as a volunteer!! For mentors, we ask that you fill the form out as it will determine whether we will have enough volunteers interested in being panelists. For high school students, we ask that you fill it out so that we know whether students are interested in attending – these webinars would be hosted for YOUR benefit :)
  3. We have decided to have our Essay Submission Form only open on weekends (Saturday 12AM - Sunday 11:59PM) because we have begun to see large volumes of submissions. We’re trying our hardest to come up with the best way to keep our service open while making sure our essay editors are able to handle their assignments! So put a reminder on your calendar to submit your essay on the weekend so you don’t miss it :)
As always, fill out our feedback surveys! If you’re a high school student, fill out this form. If you’re a volunteer, fill out this form. We want to know how we’re doing!
If you want to help support us and be more involved with our organization, become an ambassador! More information about being an ambassador as well as the form to apply can be found here!
Lastly, please consider donating! All donations will be going to our expenses like the website, domain, and newsletter, as well as fees required to become a nonprofit organization. Please support us so that we can continue supporting you all :) The donation page is here.
That’s all we have for this issue! If this is the first newsletter you’ve received from us, check out our profile to see all our other issues. Also, all our socials can be found here.
