Would you like to mentor or be mentored?

I would like to be a peer/group mentor
If you are interested in group mentorship would you like to be a group facilitator?
A group facilitator's role is to organise the logistics of the mentorship group, for example, by organising the mentorship meeting schedule. They are not expected to act as a mentor for the rest of the group, but as an equal peer mentor who gives and receives mentorship. Depending on the responses we get, the Facilitator role may rotate to each group member for equal amounts of time during the Programme (e.g. each group member will have the facilitator role for 2 months).
I am not interested in group mentoring
