This nonprofit provides mentorship, leadership development, and funding to women across Asia. Since their founding, approximately 1,035 mentors, 900 mentees, and 2,020 women have participated in their programs. They are seeking volunteers from all sectors and professions to conduct virtual mentoring sessions for young women ages 16-18.
The virtual event will start with an introduction to the organization and their flagship programs and opportunities. Volunteer mentors will then undergo a mini-training on good mentoring tips before being assigned to either a one-on-one or group career planning mentoring session, depending on the number of mentees participating.
Meeting in Zoom breakout rooms, mentees will then have ~1.5 hours to talk with their mentors about their past experiences, current situation, and how to reach their next 5-10 year goals. After these discussions, everyone will return back to the main Zoom room for a debrief and feedback session.
The agenda is as follows:
- Introduction to the organization, ice breaker, and mentoring instructions – 30 minutes
- Mentoring sessions – 1.5 hours
- Debrief and feedback session – 30 minutes
