YCL mentoring is a unique opportunity for young people to discuss their professional aspirations with an experienced professional, whether they are at the beginning of the professional path or interested in making a career transition.
In addition to advice and new perspectives, the mentor also has the role of being provocative and asking questions that you have not previously asked, which will help you to define the clear action plan for your short, medium or long term growth goals.
