Skills Targeted For Development In Mentored Students

Communication

Considering the fact that most of the problems encountered by individuals in their professional lives and social relationships arise from communication mistakes, the Mentorship Program will give mentees the opportunity to express themselves in an effective way and to develop themselves applying the effective communication skills by taking their mentors as an example during this period.

Self-respect and Self-efficacy

This will help mentored students to get to know themselves better and to accept who they really are, to feel that they are competent and valued, and to discover their strengths to believe in themselves in achieving their targets.

Hope

During the Mentorship Program, mentees will be encouraged to dream about future, to understand that there may be alternatives other than the life they are familiar with, and to develop a more positive and hopeful perspective of future.

Social Support

Social Support is key not only for individual’s mental health but also for coping with the problems they encounter. As the program will include students who perceive that the level of support from their families, teachers and/friends are relatively lower and who are considered to need more support in achieving their targets, they will find an opportunity to develop themselves with the support of their mentors throughout the program.

Future Planning

One of the biggest objectives of the Mentorship Program is to help students to gain clarity regarding their professional targets and expectations and to mediate their plans for the future. The program will allow mentored students to know themselves better and discover their strengths accordingly, to realize their areas of interest to reflect upon the subjects they want to study at the university and to learn how to plan their future.
