What is an Approver?

Approvers are the parents, teachers, and guardians of the Mentees. Approvers validate (or ‘Approve’) posts created by Mentees. Once the post is approved, Mentors can reward Mentees for their accomplishments. All Approvers are also Mentors, but not all Mentors are Approvers.

How Do I Become an Approver?

1. Sign up to become a Mentor.
2. Request Approver connection with your Mentee.
3. The connection request will be reviewed by Amumba staff.

Why does Amumba review Approver connections?

Approvers give credibility to the posts they approve. In order to ensure the integrity of the system, we verify that each Approver is a parent or teacher of the Mentee and that s/he is qualified to approve a Mentee’s posts within a given category.
