The importance and value of a MAD Leadership Foundation mentor to the success of the programme are 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 them.
- Regular communication with their mentee is recommended.
- At least one monthly meeting with the mentee is compulsory.
