Can the weekly call be over phone instead of video?
Certainly! We understand that scheduling conflicts, tech issues, or other circumstances might make a phone call a better alternative to a video call with your mentee. That said, we encourage you to push for a weekly video as much as possible in order to develop a strong rapport and connection with your mentee throughout the course.
If your mentee explicitly asks and prefers to continue connecting over phone instead of video, then we completely support this alternative. However, this must come from your mentee and should not be initiated and pushed by you.
