How do you become a Sololearn Mentor?

Sololearn looks for community members who have shown patience in helping all community members, no matter their level of experience. They share Sololearn values, and demonstrate this through their love of learning, positive actions, respect for diverse individuals, and a desire for a welcoming, inclusive space. 

Community members can be nominated by active Mentors or selected due to their outstanding contributions to the community. A Sololearn staff member will reach out to see if they would like to join the Mentor program. If the invitation is accepted, the new Mentor will receive free Sololearn Pro and be given access to all Mentor-exclusive perks. The other Mentors and Sololearn staff will be resources and help the new Mentor navigate their new privileges and abilities.

In the event that a Mentor abuses their privileges, violates the Sololearn Terms of Use or Content Creation and Community Guidelines, acts in bad faith, or has a negative impact on the community, all privileges and abilities may be revoked. They may or may not be warned before action is taken, depending on the severity of the offense, and they shall be privately notified of any action. Any badges, achievements, or XP earned as a Mentor will remain, access to Mentor perks including free Pro will be revoked. Unless further disciplinary action is warranted, the Mentor will simply return to being a regular user.

Mentors may also choose to step down from the Mentor role. They simply need to notify their Sololearn point of contact that they wish to leave the program and they will be returned to being a regular user. Any badges, achievements, or XP earned as a Mentor will remain, access to Mentor perks including free Pro will be revoked.
