“Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be.”
– Eric Parsloe, The Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring
TRiBE‘s Mentoring programme is an integral part of all that we do. Our aim is to be able to help pay forward the guidance our mentors were fortunate enough to receive on to the women we work with in order to encourage them to grow and realise their potential.
At the moment our Mentoring programme is for women aged between 16-30. We match volunteer mentors working from a range of industries and professions with different kinds of women, from those who are eager to learn to those who might need a little more of a push. The professions of our mentors so far range from broadcast journalists to lawyers and chief executives, but we are always on the look out for more so if you are interested please click here. If you are interested in gaining a mentor and becoming a mentee, please click here.
The age range that we work with can usually be a difficult transition for many young women, making them feel uncertain and overwhelmed. They may not have the confidence or networks to access certain opportunities and this is where our mentors come in. Mentors will use their skills and experience to support these women, guiding them through a period of change.
Mentoring works because everyone is unique and can bring something different to the table, and through one-to-one support each of our TRiBE members needs and priorities can be addressed.
If we are able to keep mentoring and reaching those who need to be reached we can not only change the prospects of an individual but also the community.
