Background

Mentorship is a big part of the Center's 4 week program. Mentors are the role models, coaches, acquaintances, and guiding lights who will be a crucial part of developing our participants to positively improve their communities, enhance their leadership skills, and become global citizens. The goal of the Mentor/Mentee relationship is to offer both parties a chance to learn from each other and to build understanding across generations, culture, citizenship, backgrounds, etc.
A Mentor is an experienced individual who can offer guidance and experience as it relates to the implementation of the participant's individual project, coaching his/her professional development, providing him/her with support by listening and giving advice on life matters, and/or sharing wisdom and knowledge with the Mentee.

All Mentors will be required to have full-time work experience of a minimum of five years. Information that the Mentor provides in this application form will be inputted to Mentor Profile that will be accessible on password-protected Mentorship Portal open only to participants of the program. The participant will then be able to select a Mentor and request to be matched with him/her. The Mentor will be able to confirm the request and commence the engagement with the Mentee.

We encourage Mentors and Mentees to interact at least once a week during the 12-week training program in order to establish a fulfilling and meaningful relationship. At the end of the 4 week program, the Mentor and Mentee will have the option to continue their engagement or might feel that they have mutually achieved their set goals.

We sincerely appreciate your willingness to share your time, talent, skills, and knowledge with a young leader through the YALI Regional Leadership Center East Africa Mentorship Program.

Thank you,
