Building the Mentoring under Construction Community

Mentoring under Construction is a process of exploration and community building in the landscape of mentoring within the European Solidarity Corps. This process started online in late 2020 and still continues several online and residential events later bringing altogether more than 100 professionals and enthusiasts in the field of mentoring.

The Mentoring under Construction Community is being built by professionals interested in raising the quality in mentoring, in search for:

  • A common understanding of key concepts around the role of mentor: role, responsibilities, needed competences
  • Personal and professional development to keep up with the emerging challenges in the field of mentoring 
  • Knowledge sharing and good practices
  • A vibrant network of mentors, ready to support one another, learn and improve

Follow-up / MeetUP

This seminar will be followed up by a series of MeetUPs, short thematic events aiming to address specific mentoring issues based on the community interests as well as online workshops. In addition, a series of videocasts and online resources are envisaged to be produced and/or shared.
