Student to Student Mentoring
Mentoring is a relationship in which the more experienced individual supports the development of a less experienced individual by being an advisor and guide. Mentoring can be done in the following three ways:
- Mentoring: From Student
- Mentoring: From an Industry Professional
- Mentoring: From an Industry Leader
In student to student mentoring, the senior student becomes a mentor to a junior student. Junior students value learning from their seniors, as they:
- Will be of similar age groups
- Understand each other much better on an emotional front
- Can easily develop trust based relationship
Mentoring makes students better and effective listeners. It teaches them time management, technique of empowering others and improves their communication skills. This in turn develops their leadership skills and capabilities. For the mentee (junior student) it is easy to trust someone who has faced similar thoughts, queries and challenges, and learn how they overcame those situations.
Study habits, subject expertise, and practice methods of seniors fosters the development needs of juniors. Senior and junior student can speak and understand each other in an excellent manner, through a structured mentoring program.
