Yes, they do provide a series of mentorship program during the internship time. You will be able to network with senior managers during coffee chats. An intern is expected to mingle with different teams / manager and introduce his/ her qualities during every interaction. For success in AMEX, it is a smart work with good network.

Yes for some diversity groups. Monthly meeting in groups of 3-4 with senior executive (GM) where we talk about different issues.
My first mentor helped me solve a personal problem, my second one was less useful
Unfortunately, there is nothing provided in terms of mentorship program, formally, but you do tlhave your teammates and your manager to help you around and no one is going to judge you in your first six months here, so feel free to ask as many questions and doubts as you want to. Trust your instincts as you go through the learning process. Everything is made available in terms of learning resources so one also needs to be proactive in working their way out through those resources. That said, the processes and functions here are completely transparent, you can, too, approach a VP for trivial understandings and matters!

American Express does offer an employee mentorship program, open to all areas of the company. Every employee is eligible and will be paired with someone based on each person's interest. Mentor roles are typically open to those who are either tenured employees and/or in leadership positions (subordinates, direct-reports, etc.). A mentee will be partnered with a mentor that is at least one tier/bandwidth higher than the mentee (e.g. a manager will mentor an analyst).
