New Mentor Application

In many ancient schools of philosophy, including Stoicism, the role of a philosopher was to guide their students toward lives of flourishing, called eudaimonia. We’re reviving this vital tradition by connecting world-class philosophers with eager students around the globe. Our mentors guide, educate, challenge and encourage our mentees with the objective of helping them to live a more meaningful and examined life.
