This training activity invites active mentors (newcomers that are already involved in an ongoing project as well as experienced mentors) that feel the need of developing their competences further and improving the quality of their mentorship.


This training activity offers the opportunity to further develop competencies that are needed as a mentor within EVS. There will be time to reflect on the roles, responsibilities and challenges of actors involved in Mentoring, to share experiences and to get to know about other people´s practices.

The educational approach of the training activity is based on non formal education methods and experiential learning as well as the contribution of participants and on active participation in all parts of the programme.
