What is Mentoring Programme? How do we carry out?

 

Mentoring Programme is designed for UKCWC volunteers (mentees). The goal is to help volunteers to understand themselves and explore their potential in life and work. 

1. Pairing Objectives

2. The content of the Pairing Activity

  • One-to-one mentoring is based on the use of one-to-one conversations between mentors and mentees focusing on solving mentee’s issues. Mentees should submit the issues in advance to mentors before the meeting commences, and then discuss the solutions together during the series meetings.
  • The briefings of the meeting should be recorded for review before the next meeting.
