Do you have a few more questions about NGOTB? Check out our most frequently asked questions below:
Where are you located?
We are based in Toronto, Canada but our reach is worldwide. Online mentoring is available for mentees who live outside Canada.
What is Mentorship?
Wikipedia defines mentorship as a personal developmental relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. The mentor may be older or younger, but have a certain area of expertise. It is a learning and development partnership between someone with vast experience and someone who wants to learn.
Mentors are good, but sponsors are better - Here's why!
Listen, we pride ourselves on providing excellent mentorship, but we have done enough research to know that what women really need are sponsors. New Girl on the Block provides both. Don’t understand the difference? Mentors are advisors. They are in your life to help guide your steps, but sponsors?! They put other women in a position to advance in their lives and careers. Sponsors send intro emails. Sponsors advocate for you when you aren’t in the room. Sponsors put their name on the line so you can have access to job opportunities, resources, industry experts and more.
Besides mentorship, are there any additional benefits to joining the program?
Yes! Think of our crew like a sorority. After your “paid” term, our relationship does not end there. You become an alumni student which means you are entitled to a life-long membership for free. We reward hard work. Here is what you can expect moving forward.
- Local/international field trips
- Access to business scholarships
- Tuition reimbursement
- Online private Facebook community
- Weekly 1-on-1 sessions with Pauleanna via phone/in-person

How do you continue to improve the quality of your mentorship program?
Besides industry research and personal insight into what millennial women want, we also have a suggestion box that is open to all mentees. We monitor it carefully and welcome all feedback.

How do you measure success in your program?
Simple, your success in this program is dependent upon your ability to prioritize and execute. The ladies who excel are the ones who are active listeners, vocalize their ideas and are open to constructive feedback. We are here to help you exceed your goals. This is not a game, this is your life.

Every great success story once started with a small step forward.
Is there a financial investment?
Is there a financial investment?
Yes, and it’s very affordable. Working with a coach requires both a personal commitment of time and
energy as well as a financial commitment. All financial details are addressed in the initial phone
consultation before the mentorship begins.
