Cohort vs On Demand
Art of Mentoring supports two main types of mentoring models: Cohort and On-Demand. In the Cohort model, the mentoring program has a set start and end date (usually 6-12 months), the participant pool (mentors and mentees) has clearly defined parameters and desired outcomes, matching is supported by a program manager, and the participants benefit from the social learning and networking of cohort programs.
In the On-Demand model, the mentoring program runs continuously (recruitment, registration and mentoring relationships), pairs match independently managing their own match duration (usually 3 – 6 months). The overall design of On-demand programs is typically less structured than Cohort programs, with Cohort programs tending to be associated with higher program effectiveness.
