The Mentoring Programme links recent graduates with alumni with more experience in order to provide them with career advice, tips and insights into a career into the human rights field.
“It was a great opportunity to understand the way to redirect my career to go back to where my passion and interests are. My mentor helped me with that. She tried to translate my ideas and will and put them into practice.” – Mentee 2015
GCA Mentoring Programme (2017-2018) – 5th Edition
THE GCA MENTORING PROGRAMME: What is it about?
You know that often it’s not the answers but the questions which make you grow. That’s what the Global Campus Alumni (GCA) Mentoring Programme is about. It connects alumni one-on-one for support, advice and the exchange of fresh ideas. Since 2012, over 250 people have participated and benefited from the experience, as mentors and mentees.
If you need guidance on your professional and personal choices, if you’d like to build on your coaching skills, or support fellow alumni to fulfill their potential, register as a Mentor or Mentee in the GCA Mentoring Programme.
Who can participate?
Any professional with a relevant background and an interest in human rights can become a Mentor, but you have to be a Global Campus Alumni (GCA) to become a Mentee. The Global Campus Mentoring Programme is free for participants and is coordinated by the GCA ProjectsTask Force, composed by members of the different GCA regional associations.
What can you expect?
In this edition, the features of the Programme have been changed to adapt it to the needs and preferences of its participants according to the recommendations received throughout previous editions. How does it work now?
• Once registered, you will be able to access a pool of alumni, where mentors and mentees will be able to look at each other´s profiles, reach out to each other and find a suitable match according to their own needs, expectations and availability.
• Couples will have the chance to sign a Mentoring Agreement to formalize their mentoring relationship. Through the Mentoring Agreement, couples will be able to access support and follow-up by the Mentoring Task Force, and will be awarded a diploma at the end of their experience.
Further collaboration and exchange
Participants in the programme will be able to access peer support through an online forum on the GCA website and will receive updates about good practices as well as links to useful resources. Upon submission of a mentoring agreement and a report, participants will also receive a certificate.
