Fled Mentoring Program 

… Promoting Intergenerational Dialogue and Development

We are pleased to invite interested individuals to participate in Fled Mentorship Program – FMP.

The Fled Mentoring Program started in 1999 as an integral part of the one-year Global Citizenship & Leadership Program (GCLP) run by Foundation for Leadership & Education Development – for high school students in Lagos State.  Since then, several hundred young people have participated in the program.

It was established as a platform to promote intergenerational relationship between the younger and older professionals for personal capacity development.

What Role Should A Mentor Play?

A mentor is someone who has experience in the areas that you are uncharted. Mentors draw from their wisdom and ‘experience’ to support their mentees. Mentors have networks and contacts that can help mentees in their professional areas.

Mentors are generally very busy individuals who are willing to spare part of their time to connect with young professionals for free.

How Do we Select Mentees and Mentors?

Mentors and Mentees that desire to participate in the program are required to first complete an application form, which serves as an Expression of Interest. This is followed by a more comprehensive interview to determine suitability of the prospective participant.

Mentors are carefully considered based on their multi-disciplinary experience, while prospective mentees are selected based on their clearly identified need. Mentors are invited from anywhere, though selection preference is given to Alumni Members of the Fled Institute, while mentees are welcome from everywhere.
