Changing Lives

How the Program works

The program achieves its goals by establishing an intellectual and partially social network connecting experienced individuals with valuable knowledge to young individuals seeking guidance and advice. It offers various platforms through which experienced mentors can provide invaluable insights and recommendations to those with less experience and knowledge. These mentors are dedicated volunteers who excel as experts in specific fields and industries, committed to imparting knowledge and impacting mentees with their learning and developmental goals. Additionally, mentors play a significant role in nurturing mentees, helping them discover and harness their potential in academic, professional, and personal spheres. The program also includes group workshops, providing mentees with opportunities to interact with their peers independently from their one-on-one mentorship sessions.

Empower young leaders with knowledge and skills for personal and professional growth.

Who we are looking for

Target Participants


Our mentees are young individuals eager to learn, grow, and develop both personally and professionally. They are expected to:

  • Be enrolled in a relevant field of study or in the early stages of their careers.
  • Demonstrate a strong desire to learn and be open to mentor guidance.
  • Be proactive, responsible, and committed to their own development.
  • Maintain a respectful and professional attitude toward their mentors.


Our mentors are seasoned professionals with a passion for nurturing young talent. They possess a wealth of experience in their respective fields and are committed to sharing their knowledge and insights. They are expected to be:

  • Experienced professionals with a minimum of 6 years of experience in their field.
  • Willing to dedicate time and effort to guide and support mentees.
  • Excellent communicators with strong interpersonal skills.
  • Committed to maintaining confidentiality and ethical standards.

Meetings and Workshops

Mentor and Mentee pairs are expected to hold a minimum of six (6) meetings during the mentorship period to establish clear benchmarks and goals. While meetings can be conducted in person or through technological means, in-person meetings are encouraged whenever possible. Mentors should also make themselves available for ad hoc assistance as needed. The program runs from February to July, and it includes mandatory workshops covering key topics such as Financial Planning, Mental Health Awareness, Leadership Skills, Public Speaking, and Job Search-related matters like cover letters and CV writing. Additionally, mentees will participate in Circle of Friends sessions, a mentee-based support group, providing a safe space for reflection, release, and recovery.

Helpful Tips

Some things that will help you on your journey.

The cornerstone of effective mentorship is lending an attentive ear. Provide mentees with the opportunity to express themselves and encourage them to devise their solutions under your guidance.

Mentees are on a learning journey and may stumble along the way. Instead of being overly critical of their errors, offer guidance that enables them to learn from these experiences.

Challenge mentees to set ambitious goals that push them beyond their comfort zones. Your role is to elevate their expectations beyond what they initially anticipate.

Choosing a mutually convenient time for interactions ensures that both parties can be fully present and minimises distractions during sessions.

As a mentee, it’s your responsibility to actively drive the mentorship relationship and make the most of this valuable opportunity.
