Your Tasks

Your role as a mentor: confidant and coach

Showing young people new perspectives: Mentors form tandems with the participants of our JOBLINGE program, in which they support the young people in articulating their interests, better assessing their skills and making the best use of them.

Enriching for both sides

The young people benefit from the professional and life experience of their mentors.
They appreciate having someone who takes them and their wishes seriously, gives them practical tips, stands by them in the event of difficulties, and rejoices with them in their successes. The mentors create perspectives - and in the process broaden their own perspective through encounters with young people from completely different backgrounds and life worlds.

Whats needed

Your start in mentoring

You will be prepared for your task in a professional training and after intensive interviews you will be matched with a mentee. You should plan 1-2 hours per week for mentoring over a period of about six months. In the beginning, the assignment is usually the most time-consuming.
As a mentor, you will not be alone: our staff will be there for you and will hold regular discussions with you and your mentee. Furthermore, mentor get-togethers offer the opportunity to exchange experiences and network with other mentors.
