FUF's Mentorship Program
FUF wants to give back to its young, committed members! Are you involved in a non-profit organization or are you doing an internship through FUF? you are therefore offered the opportunity to have your own mentor at the beginning of each new semester.
Through the mentorship program, FUF wants to take advantage of all the knowledge and experience that our highly qualified professional / retired member base possesses and connect them with our younger employees. The idea is to create opportunities for these two member groups to meet and exchange thoughts, ideas and experiences regarding studies, career choices and common areas of interest.
At the beginning of the semester, FUF organizes a joint start-up meeting. Mentors and mentees themselves are responsible for planning meetings and meet approximately 2-3 times during the semester. At the end of the semester, FUF asks the mentor and mentee to evaluate their meetings.
How do I get a mentor?
FUF calls for mentors by sending emails within its network twice a year (before each semester). Professionals / pensioners who are interested in becoming mentors to one or more trainees register their interest in firstname.lastname@example.org. The request is then sent out to all volunteers involved in FUF's communication groups and local groups, as well as to interns when the semester has started. After the application deadline, FUF matches mentors and mentees.
