Why Join YWLC’s Mentorship Programme?
Aimed at high potential young women seeking guidance in their professional careers and personal lives, this prestigious programme offers YWLC members an exclusive opportunity to be mentored by some of Singapore’s most accomplished women leaders across various industries and sectors.
The programme was initiated in March 2009 and is currently in its eleventh cycle. Whether you are new to the workforce or contemplating a mid-career switch, this programme provides an avenue to interact with and gain valuable advice from some of the best in their fields. You may even opt for a mentor outside of your industry, if a change of perspective is what you need.
Every mentor-mentee relationship is special in its own way, with mentors playing different hats such as your role model, cheerleader, counsellor, tactical coach or even your most honest critic.
We seek to achieve the following over a nine month period:
Act as an official platform for mentees and mentors to connect and develop fulfilling, long-term relationships with one another
Enhance learning and personal development of mentees through guidance from mentors as well as exclusive leadership development activities for mentees
Provide an avenue for mentees and mentors to make meaningful contributions to the community
