FLED MENTORING PROGRAMME (FMP)
Offering you a solid ladder to climb
FLED Mentorship Programme was started in 1999 as integral part of the one-year Global Citizenship & Leadership Programme (GCLP) run by Foundation for Leadership & Education Development – for high school students in Lagos State. Having successfully conducted the mentoring program for a number of years, it was suspended in 2007. More than 500 mentees and 50 mentors had participated in the programme.
The Mentoring programme was later transferred to FLED International Leadership Institute in order to expand the program’s scope and reach. Consequently, the programme has been repackaged and is now Re-launched to serve a wider spectrum of people and for greater benefit of both mentors and mentees. It now provides opportunity for continuing engagement among Students, Faculty, Members of the Institute, and other individuals who desire to improve their leadership and professional competencies.
Nature of the Programme
FLED Mentoring Programme runs on Two Legs: The Group Mentoring Class which holds monthly and the One-On-One Mentoring Arrangement where mentors and Mentees are matched by the Institute for engagement over a specified period of time, usually between 3 -12 months.
How Do we Choose Mentees And Mentors?
Mentors and Mentees that desire to participate in the program are to first complete an Expression of Interest Form. This is followed by a more comprehensive form and interview to determine suitability of the prospective participant.
Applications are carefully considered based on the mentors’ multi-disciplinary experience, while prospective mentees are selected based on clearly identified need. Mentors can be located nationally, even globally.
- Professional Leadership Grooming
- Politics & Public Governance
- Career Advancement
- Entrepreneurship & Business Development
How are Mentors and Mentees Matched?
Each Mentee enrolls to participate in any of the options above. Then a mentor in that field is identified and matched to them. Mentees that enroll for a 12-month one-on-one Mentoring are allowed to enroll in maximum of two options, one option per six months.
What Is The Age Limit To Participate In Mentoring?
Prospective mentees must be above 18 years of age and must have completed minimum of Senior Secondary School. Mentors, of course, are adults and professionals in their fields of endeavours.
How Do I Interact With My Mentor If I Can’t See Them?
Mentoring can be conducted face-to-face or using new media technology. The choice about how you meet is yours and your mentor’s and depends on availability and location. Our goal is to match you, no matter where you are located, with the most suitable mentor who can help you achieve your professional and career objectives.
What Is The Duration Of The Mentoring?
Monthly Mentoring Classes lasts between 3-4 hours. One-on-one mentoring engagements last between 3-12 months. Regularity and duration of each meeting or other exchanges are agreed upon between the mentor and the Mentee.
What Is The Cost Of This Programme?
Monthly Mentoring Classes are open for a small fee which is advertised from time to time. For prospective mentees desiring to enroll in One-on-One Mentoring engagement, the fixed fees are as follows:
- Three Months – N10, 000 ($25)
- Six Months – N25, 000 ($64)
- 12 months – N40, 000 ($103)
Mentors are exempted from any fees.

What Role Should A Mentor Play?
A mentor is someone who has experience in the areas that you are uncharted. You will be drawing from their wisdom and ‘experience’. In some cases, Mentors have networks and contacts that can help you in certain areas – but even if they don’t, they will know where to go or how to approach finding the right expert. Mentors are generally very busy individuals and will help guide and support you – but they are not there to ‘do’ things for you. You are responsible for dealing with your matter. A Mentor is someone you can trust with the issues facing you and the difficulties you might find hard to speak with someone else about. They have had experience building a business, leading a team, been in politics, been involved in diverse areas of public life, and so they know what it’s like.
