YWLC Mentorship

 “Looking back on my own career, I wish I could have benefited from mentorship as well as networking. YWLC provides just that. It allows young ladies to tap the experiences of women who are more established in their careers and lives and this gives them the networking opportunities as well.”

Ms Grace Fu

Chairperson, YWLC Council of Advisors

Minister for Culture, Community and Youth; Leader of the House; Member of Parliament for Yuhua SMC

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.
