For mentors

ISM mentoring project "Alumni to student"  brings together ISM students and graduates since 2014. The project mediates them forming a mutually beneficial interaction. ISM alumni from different fields dedicate their time to share their experiences, consult and give advice to ISM students on different questions: How can I reach my goals? How to plan my career? How to be successful in studies and other activities? Students and alumni are also encouraged to continue communicating outside the official program after the official mentoring period ends.

The renewed project is starting to co-operate with the mentoring platform idialogue. This platform was developed by ISM Alumni - Saulius Alksnis, in order to facilitate the mentoring process. ISM is the first university in Lithuania which decided to use such platform.
Plan of the project
1. Mentors registration
2. Student registration, candidacy and start of communication with the mentor
3. Three-month mentoring process, informal meetings, exclusive events for the participants of the project
4. Final event

Mentor's role

The main role of the mentor is to help students excel in sharing their professional and personal experience. Communicating with a student mentor asks provocative questions and helps students gain more knowledge that will be useful in future decision-making.

Successful mentor:

  • Motivates: expresses confidence in the learner's skills and encourages to try new things
  • Shares: teaches and advises how to establish professional contacts
  • Helps: promotes an open and sincere communication, responds to the student‘s needs
  • Teaches: helps students to grow professionally and reach their goals

Becoming a Mentor is not only communicating face-to-face with students who often provide new insights and perspectives, but also an important contribution to the future success of the graduates and the strengthening of ISM alumni community.
