BECOME A MENTOR
"Mentoring can be an enriching relationship for both parties, where one more experienced person (Mentor) shares their knowledge, skills, information, insights and life experience with another less experienced person (Mentee), in order to create growth through personal and professional development, problem-solving and discussion of issues to reach the specific goals of the Mentee using constructive feedback".
Our mentoring programme aims to aid in the growth and development of the young Latin Americans who we support. This is done through supporting their university, further education and career goals. Our candidates are often the first in their family to go to university or to achieve a professional career. Some of our candidates might also speak English only as a second language. Therefore, we require our mentors to meet at least TWO of the following requirements and be successful in our screening process.
