Pay It Forward – HESEG’s Mentor Program
The “Pay It Forward” project was launched to assist HESEG’s scholars and alumni who need of advice, guidance, or support when faced academic, professional or other personal challenges.
By sharing with and learning from mentors who have both experience and expertise, the mentor project encourages personal development, allowing our scholars and alumni to achieve their goals. The project is enriching for both parties, and provides a great deal of personal and professional satisfaction.
Recruiting and selecting mentors:
- Mentors work strictly on a voluntary basis, and are motivated by the desire to contribute to society. Mentors act as expert advisors within their field for scholars and alumni.
- Mentor and scholar pairings are made based on geographical convenience, fields of interests, and other relevant considerations and are then
confirmed once the pair have had a chance to meet and both parties agree it is a good match.
- We recruit mentors from all parts of Israel.
- Be ready to use their knowledge to guide students, who are at the beginning of their
professional journeys, and in need of direction.
- Have excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
- Be willing to volunteer their time in order to guide, support, and provide direction for students.
Mentors backgrounds include, but are not limited to: engineering, business management, economics, law, strategy and security, politics, fashion, architecture and psychology.
The mentor selection process includes:
- Completing a registration form.
- Meeting with Neta Sher, the project coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Pairing with a scholar and an initial meeting.
Who should seek a mentor?
The goal of the project is to provide guidance and support to scholars and alumni in needof consultation and guidance in various fields relating to their studies, careers or any other personal challenge they are currently facing.
Pairing with a mentor is meant for scholars and alumni who are hungry for personal development and are in need of support and guidance in order to take their first steps into the professional or academic world to achieve their goals. Participants must be committed to the process and ready to grow and learn.
