Thinking space. Mentoring – a practical guide

In this guide we focus on mentoring for young people between the age of 20 and 30 who are not in employment, not in education or training (NEETs). We will discuss mainly three different forms of mentoring, i.e. support mentees to either start and sustain their own business, to support micro entrepreneurs to face challenges of a crisis, or to secure a job. Additionally, we will discuss how our approach to mentoring has developed during the COVID-19 pandemic. This guide is based on our practical experience as mentoring programme managers (MPM) and mentors as well as research.
