- STUDENT LIFE
Mentorship is a learning relationship between students (mentees) and experienced individuals (mentors) in various industries across geographies. Mentors develop mentees in the areas of knowing-oneself, gaining confidence, career aspirations, and life goals by sharing their personal learning experiences and providing timely feedback or encouragement to mentees. On the other hand, mentees can spark a mentors’ creativity or re-energize their career by discussing new ideas or exploring new technologies or topics together. Mentorship benefit mentors as they contribute to better educate, train and engage young women from the AUW to become professionals, leaders and service-oriented citizens.
The mission of the AUW Mentorship Program (AMP) is to enhance the Asian University for Women academic experience through experiential learning, professional skills development, and leadership by coaching and creating connections and community for AUW students and alumnae with the organizations or individual volunteer partners.
AMP provides an outstanding opportunity for AUW students to interact and network with the industry leaders and change makers they hope to become as well as receive career and professional lessons through the coaching. Likewise, it offers mentors the opportunity to engage with AUW’s mission to educate women to become skilled and innovative professionals, service-oriented leaders, and promoters of intercultural understanding who lead sustainable human and economic development while at the same time have a ready pool of the best graduating students for possible employment in their companies/businesses.
For the Mentors
For the Students
This program matches students with executives or high-level business professionals, the majority of whom are leaders themselves, based on preferences in functional area, industry, geographic location, gender and other interests. Re-matching is allowed. To ensure a quality experience for both students and mentors, the AMP will provide workshops, training and additional support for participants throughout the program.
