How can you become a mentor?

Mentors’ participation is voluntary. In order to become a mentor for the PROUD project, the following steps need to be taken:

1. Application stage

potential mentors should fill in an application form, requesting data on their educational and professional level, as well as some information on their personal interests in order to facilitate the matching process.

3. Training stage

all selected mentors will participate in a 20-hour training seminar to prepare them undertake their role.

2. Selection stage

potential mentors will participate in an interview process, organized by project partners. At this stage, mentors will be asked to provide partners with a copy of their Criminal Record, as part of the screening process.

4. After the training

After the training, mentors will be matched with mentees and then a series of mentoring sessions will commence. During an eight month period, the mentoring pairs will meet for at least twelve (12) times, in order to jointly develop the mentees’ Action Plans.
