We invite you to sign up to be a mentor in the upcoming cohort of the GHS Mentoring Programme!

Requirements for participation and her/his tasks

Mentors point out opportunities, provide feedback and contacts, and let their mentees take a look behind the scenes and share their wealth of experience.


For a successful collaboration in the mentoring programme, participants should be proficient enough in English and German to be able to participate in webinars and workshops in both languages. Active/fluent knowledge in both German and English is not required. Passive knowledge of the second language and a willingness to interact with people whose mother tongue is neither German nor English are prerequisites for participation in the programme.


The tandem partners are expected to be in contact (by (video) phone, email, etc.) at least once a month. Three of these meetings should have a duration of at least 1.5 - 2 hours and can take place in digital form if it should not be possible to meet in person.


For tandem partners who do not live/work in the same place, travel costs may be reimbursed.



The mentoring program team will be available to mentors and mentees for the entire duration of the mentoring program for questions about tandem meetings and methodological support.
