WHAT IS A MENTOR AND HOW CAN YOU BECOME ONE?

Why a MENTORIG Program? Because the talented participants in the Program have the need for support and mentoring by a more experienced person. This will help them realize their talents and skills that will help their development in a professional, emotional and social aspect.

To be a Mentor to one of our talented participants you do NOT need to have experience in the creative sphere of that participant.

The role of the Mentor requires:• positive example for the child/teenager;
• guidance for the realization of the participants interests and goals;
• guidance on his / her social and relationship with others;
• support for building a positive self-esteem;
• motivating and encouraging growth in the chosen field of development;
• regular weekly meetings between the mentor and the child / young person.
This is possible through:• the gradual establishment of trust relationships;
• organizing or involving the participants in various events for personal and professional development (eg seminars, workshops, cultural events);
• emotional support and personal example.
The responsibilities of the Mentor are:• to explore the individual capabilities and interests of the participant;
• to target and recommend appropriate activities and events to the participant;
• to help him / her choose a university, internship, profession, etc.
Become a mantor
In May 2019 our team will start recruiting new Mentors for the new school year – September 2019 and May 2020. If you want to be one of them you can send us a CV and a motivational letter in writing to galina.dicheva@plushenomeche.org
