Overview of the Pilot Program
Mentors and mentees who would like to take part in the program can register at any time. By registering you become part of a database, and we will as soon as possible initiate the matching step. As part of the registration process you will be asked to answer a few questions about your education, work experience, motivation to join the program, as well as your expectations. This would help to make a perfect mentor-mentee match in the next matching step.
The matching process consists of three steps:
Once the matching phase is completed, mentoring can start. Mentor and mentee have complete freedom in scheduling the frequency of their meetings as well as in organizing their content. Nevertheless, we do provide guidance in the form of a booklet that could help to structure the mentoring in a way that, at an early stage, goals are defined as well as the strategy to reach them.
We recommend the meetings to be held at least once per month and that the mentoring phase lasts for 6 months. After 6 month of mentoring, each mentor-mentee pair will be asked to evaluate their progress to decide whether to continue or terminate further mentoring.
In the course of mentoring both mentees and mentors are asked from time to time to complete surveys that help us track progress and identify potential misunderstandings. Each mentor-mentee pair has within the organizing team a contact person, who provides them with assistance in case of any questions or concerns.
