The Universitas Mentoring Program

Here in Universitas, we believe that a society that is strongly upheld in values and universally-valid morals is a result of having citizens who have been properly guided and counseled. The Universitas Mentoring Program seeks to develop each individual person by building a bridge between mentees and mentors. These professional mentors are equipped with experiences and skills to help the person become the best version of themselves in all aspects of life, from professional to personal needs.

The mentoring program is a gender specific, one-on-one session between a male mentor and male mentee; female mentor and female mentee. The mentor is expected to treat the exchange of information between the mentee with strict confidentiality in order to maintain the trust given to each other. The expected result of this mentoring program is for the mentees to think and to reflect more on their experiences and use their new learnings and realizations to become better members of society.
