How long will it last?

In accor­dance with its goal to sup­port the devel­op­ment of excel­lence, Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing is a long-term pro­gram. Mentees start at about 16 years old and should remain an active par­tic­i­pant in Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing until they fin­ish their doc­tor­al dis­ser­ta­tion or achieve a sim­i­lar lev­el of exper­tise in their field. All par­tic­i­pants com­mit to long-term involve­ment. At least once a year, each par­tic­i­pant reviews their devel­op­ment and has the chance to adapt the process or to leave the pro­gram.
Men­tors are wel­come to vol­un­teer as long as they would like. They are asked to com­mit to at least one year at a time.
