In what capacity are you interested in joining the programme? *

If you would be interested in becoming a mentor to this exciting and inspirational group of young people, we would like to hear from you. We are looking both for personal mentors, who will be matched on a 1:1 basis with a mentee for six months (approximately 30 hours over six months), and non-assigned mentors, willing to offer expertise and advice on an as-needed basis (up to eight hours over six months).  In 2016, mentoring will run from May to December 2016.

* Please note, if you are interested in being a Personal Mentor, you will need to be available to conduct your first mentoring session at some point during the week starting 1st May 2017. We recommend keeping several options free in your diary, in order to accommodate your mentee's availability.

If you are not matched we would like to include you in the mentor panel as an unassigned advisory mentor.  This means you may be called on to help out with one off sessions where your experience would be helpful for one of the young leaders (max 8 hours over 6 months).  Please indicate if you are happy to be part of the panel in this capacity?

We will pair you with your mentee on the strength of the match of your experience and their needs.  Your mentee may live anywhere on the globe and so time zones may quite different.  Please choose whether your mentee...
