This application is for mentees ONLY, and there is a separate application for mentors.
This round of the program is informed by findings and recommendations of an external evaluation from the first phase of the program, with improved learning methods, more tailored and improved content, as well as an improved Learning Management System (LMS), and program delivery.
The Mentoring Program design includes:1) Two introductory sessions (a group one across pairs as a launch of the new edition, and an individual one between mentors and mentees of each pair to get to know each other)2) Five modules. The first two will be conducted within a month and the rest will have duration of a month. In total the duration of the program will be four months from March 01 through June 30, 2019.3) A closing session and final ceremony, and certificates of completion
Mentors and mentees will use online platforms and social media such as Skype, WhatsApp and Facebook to connect and hold their regular meetings. EvalYouth has also a customized Learning Management System (LMS) to be used as a central platform for the program.
