About this masterclass

The US mentoring field recently released a tool that brings together all the knowledge and inspiration for people who consider themselves mentors to another person. It is a tool for developing a MENTORING MIND-SET, entitled ‘Becoming a better mentor; strategies to be there for young people’. During the master class, we will delve into the themes the tool offers, such as: building self-confidence, developing empathy, setting goals and expectations, and growing a mentoring relationship with the feeling: ‘we are in this together’.
The publication and masterclass focus on the growing number of people in society who naturally, informally or formally engage in the development and success of another from the role of mentor.
