We are delighted that you are interested in joining COMMIT programme as a mentor.
Mentoring can be an extraordinary experience and a deep responsibility. We ask that our mentors are committed individuals who will respect the process and use the trainings they receive to enter into partnership with their mentee.
Mentoring is an intentional mutual relationship with a foundation of respect. Mentors are asked to walk with mentees as they navigate their new life. Mentorship can create deep relationships that may last a life time.
I understand that the mentorship lasts for 12 months and requires time and commitment in order for both mentor and mentee to create a functional relationship.
If my application is successful, I agree to Dedicate at least one meeting every week with the mentee. The number of hours will be defined during the planning phase.
If my application is successful, I agree to participate in the training session which will cover the following modules:
1. The reception project: the services provided and the active local network. How to include the mentor figure in support of it and its staff (2 hours)
2. The mentor: the role, the relationship with the mentee, building the refugees inclusion (6 hours)
3. Intercultural tools: in-depth study of the countries of origin, suggestions to work on the deconstruction of the stereotype and the overcoming of prejudice (4 hours)
If my application is successful, I agree that I will submit feedback forms when requested and keep in regular contact with the Programme Staff. The frequency of contact will be defined during the planning phase.
I understand that the Mentoring Programme welcomes a diverse range of participants. I agree to treat all mentees and mentors in the programme’s community with respect, regardless of their race, religion, gender identity, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, ethnicity, national origin, etc. And I undertake to guarantee the confidentiality of information regarding refugees and to respect their privacy.
