About the Program
This mentoring program is aimed to connect professional experts and those who wish to do a process while they got a pro escort by their side. A mentor is a volunteer who shares her/his time and knowledge and donates the proceeds to our supported non-profit organizations. A mentee can have a professional mentor to escort him/her in their professional journey, in exchange, s/he donates cash. Each mentor was selected carefully thanks to his/her experience. Through the program, the mentee will be guided to fulfilling goals through a series of meetings.
The program is divided into several professional tracks, Tech-Management, Product Management, UX, Data Science, QA, and Entrepreneurship. For a period of 3 months, as a mentee, you will have your mentor and the whole group by your side! The pairing of the mentees-mentors will be decided according to the mentees’ process, goals, and the current professional position. After application, the mentee will be contacted and paired with his/her best-fitted mentor, the payment (donation fee) will be with the mentee’s approval to the chosen mentor and the proposed time. Notice that the application for the program doesn’t guarantee your participation in the program.
You will have ten 1:1 sessions of 1 hour each with your mentor, in addition, we will have 3 meetups (real, face-to-face, like the good old days).
This is the 4th cohort of the program, after helping almost 140 mentees on their professional journey, and donating about 135,000 NIS to NPOs, we are thrilled to expand this doing and help even more people and creatures ^_^.
Being a mentee is a commitment, the mentor can’t do your work, s/he can only escort and advise you. Everyone needs a mentor, whether you are a newbie (haven’t worked yet in the field), an intern/junior (this is your first job), junior+ (over 2 years xp), or an entrepreneur/startup/business.
The full description is listed below.
The program begins with an opening session with all the mentees and mentors, and the nonprofit organizations to which you will be donating.
The intro meetup will give us a chance to get to know each other and learn about our mentoring and personal development journey.
This will be the first time we will all meet, from this day on, for 3 months, we have one goal and that’s to help each other. During those 3 months, we will be available offline on Whatsapp & Linkedin groups for any questions.
As a mentee you can also contribute to others, if you wish to give a talk, to share a tip or an idea with the group – please do!
The first meeting with the mentor is to set quantitive goals for the program. Afterward, in each session, the mentor will review your progress, and will help you to exploit your challenges.
The sessions with the mentor will be once every 1 week for the first month, for the following 3 months, a meeting 2 weeks, you will set the date & time together with him/her.
During the program, we will contact you to collect feedback and make sure you’re all good ^_^.
The middle meetup will focus on getting to know the people who experience the journey with you in a roundtable setting.
The last meetup will focus on the program review, sharing experiences and getting some inspiration for the journey ahead.
