How to Participate in an Education Youth Mentoring Program
Are you in college—starting, somewhere mid-course, or finishing—but looking to get your foot in the door working as an education coordinator (public schools, early childhood development centers, study abroad programs, etc)?
Do you have a love for education and making an impact on children and youth development?
Do you like to plan, create learning programs, and design curriculum and/or courses?
Do you have 15 hours weekly that you can spare for your learning and professional growth?
If you are a young adult and answered “yes” to these questions, then this program is for you!
The Education Youth Mentoring Program is aimed at young adults in the field of education, aged 18 -25, who want to get their feet wet in education leadership and coordinating educational programs.
Whether you are starting or finishing college and looking for practical experience in curriculum development, course creation, this program gives you, participants, a solid foundation on that.
The experience acquired through this mentorship will be especially handy if you are interested in a career as an education coordinator, project manager in education, curriculum specialist, instructional coordinators.
The program is free and lasts six months. It requires 15 hours of commitment from the students. After successful completion, the mentee will receive a certificate of completion, letter of reference, and college credits (for those who need them).
So what are you waiting for? Are you ready to take your educational skills to the next level?
What is an Education Youth Mentoring Program?
It is a program geared towards young adults, where the end goal is for them to get hands-on experience in curriculum planning and design before getting into the real-world market. The program also works to further the apprentices’ current experience.
What will I learn?
You will immerse yourself in the activities of an education coordinator and learn how to develop curriculum and programs, how to use a content management system (CMS), improve your writing (content writing and copywriting) skills, get hands-on practice with mentorship and project management, etc.
Who will mentor me?
Yours truly. I will mentor you every step of the way. I have more than 15 years of professional experience in multifaceted areas (my complete portfolio is available on LinkedIn), three of which have been as an entrepreneur and strategist.
What do I need to succeed in the Editorial Youth Mentoring program?
Commitment, dedication, and willingness to learn.
Do I need to have or be studying a specific degree to participate?
Potential mentees should be currently pursuing (or about to pursue) a degree in Education, Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education or related majors.
How many students are you accepting into the program?
Because you will be working closely with me, and I want to provide you with all the tools you need to succeed, I will only be able to take on three mentees at a time. That said, I will only take on serious and committed students.
Will I learn only about education or is there anything else included?
Through the program, you will work on a lot of education-related issues, but you will also learn a lot about project management, content writing, and marketing strategies.
How will the mentorship take place?
Online. This is a remote mentorship program in which we will meet regularly through various productivity tools (Skype, GoToMeeting, Zoom, Asana). I will also be available by email and phone.
I would like to be part of the program. Where can I apply?
Great! I can’t wait to see how committed you are. Please apply here. If you still have questions or concerns, please send me an email or reach out through the contact form, and I will get back to you soon.
