Being a mentor means engaging concretely in a societal project that both makes sense and works! Once trained by the association, you will coach a young person for two/three hours a week over a period of six months. You will define his/her professional project, look for job offers, train him/her for interviews, and discuss the codes that are specific to the sector or to our culture.
By sharing your experience gained throughout your career, you will really offer a young person the chance to build his or her own project, and without even realising it, bring new meaning to your own.
