BECOME A MENTOR

The importance and value of a MAD Leadership Foundation mentor to the success of the programme is without question: they are there to act as a safety net, to identify possible problem areas and to help with personal skills development.

Mentors help empower our scholars with life-skills development, expose them to the business world,
create networking and internship opportunities, and guide them in the direction of becoming agents for positive change in our society.

Commitments of a mentor:

  • Workshops and written guidelines are provided, in order to ensure that the mentor is equipped to mentor effectively and knows what is expected of him/her.
  • Regular communication with his/her mentee is recommended.
  • At least one monthly meeting with the mentee is compulsory.

Apply to be a mentor:

  • Mentors go through a thorough screening process and references are checked, before MAD Leadership Foundation matches a scholar with a new mentor.
  • The match-making process is based on gender (e.g. male to male), proximity to each other and rapport between the mentor and MAD Leadership Foundation scholar. You can download an application form here and submit it to info@madleadership.org
