Group mentoring returns – sign up as a mentor on the 14th of September at latest!

The group mentoring program 2021–2022 will start again in November, and we are now looking for mentors for students.

You now have a great opportunity to help students towards graduation and working life. This is already the 11th group mentoring programme at our university!

Group mentoring means sharing your own skills and life experience with a small group of students at different stages of study. 2–4 students are selected for the group. Language of the groups can be Finnish, Swedish or English. Students of the University of Helsinki need support from alumni of their own fields. You now have the opportunity to provide this support in the students’ path towards graduation and working life!

Applying for the 2021–2022 Group Mentoring Programme as a mentor

The group mentoring programme of 2021–2022 will be kicked off with an initial meeting  on November 24th 2021. A final meeting will be organized in May 2022.

The joint events for this season of the mentoring programme begin remotely. However, the groups can meet face to face during the mentoring programme depending on the situation of the pandemic and their own decision. You can participate in remote events through Zoom. To participate, you need a computer, smartphone or tablet. Between the initial and final meeting the mentoring groups will meet approximately once a month.

Sign up for the programme as a mentor with this Lyyti-form!

We will contact all mentor applicants at the end of September.
