Information for Mentors

Mentoring a prospective university student can be a truly rewarding experience. Here you have the opportunity to:

  • Provide much needed services to your motherland, Sri Lanka, by assisting fellow Sri Lankan achieve his/her academic objectives

A mentoring relationship of trust allows meaningful conversations to take place. These conversations impact the thinking process, attitudes/perceptions, and the behavior of the mentee. Access to a person who has experience in the area of interest for the mentee could be of great benefit in making key decisions. SL2College will coordinate the selection process to ensure that the partnership between the mentor and the mentee is a synergistic one.

 

Requirements from the mentor:

  • Have completed, or be at least halfway through, a Bachelor’s Degree or reading for an advanced degree from an accredited University in Sri Lanka or a foreign country.
  • Be able to dedicate a few hours per week for the mentor program. You should be able to work with the mentee during a 3 month period (can be extended with mutual agreement) to achieve his/her higher education goals (eg. If the mentee is interested in applying to an MSc program, help him/her with the application process etc).
  • Be able to report on progressions during mentoring, with a short snippet, once per two weeks. This will help SL2College make modifications to the program and improve it.
  • Discuss higher education goals of the mentee and help him/her formulate the optimal higher education path (We will be matching you with students in line with your educational experience)
  • Guide the mentee on obtaining necessary information, when your personal experience does not cover a given issue.
  • You would not be expected to do any work other than advising and guiding the mentee (eg. if the mentee is applying for a Master program, you would not be expected to research universities etc, your responsibility would be to guide the mentee on how to best find that information)
