Mentoring for Change
India has the highest number of young individuals in the world, creating an enormous consumption market. While this can generate a strong economic opportunity, it can simultaneously cause environmental and societal imbalances. Therefore, we are faced with challenge of providing youth with the appropriate guidance. This will benefit both, the individual and the society as a whole.
Experts in a variety of disciplines who are recognized globally are passionate to build a better society for the future. We are attempting to create a model which would leverage the expertise, experience and knowledge of such individuals from various domains and connect them to the youth of this country. This interaction should provide the mentees with the necessary guidance.
Our goal is to provide mentoring interventions across the defined areas using advanced ICT technologies.
How this works
Our mode of delivery of mentoring sessions is unique. This is not an individual mentoring session. VCF solely provides group mentoring sessions to a maximum of 20 participants per session.
We leverage technologies that can deliver this process virtually. We are constantly building a database of world-class mentors for the defined domains. The mentors could be located anywhere in the world. Mentees (Organizations and Institutes of higher learning) that are interested in our mentoring program will have the ability to choose the mentor online. The mentors and the mentees can select the date and time for the sessions based on mutual convenience. A fee will be charged to the Mentee Organizations/Institutions for the mentoring sessions.
A program manager will be exclusively assigned to the Mentee and will facilitate the administration of these mentoring sessions. Technology will enable the mentees to have interactive sessions with our mentors.
Becoming a Mentor
If you believe you have the right expertise and experience and are passionate about giving back to the society, apply to Valluri Change Foundation as a mentor. We will find the right audience for you.
A mentor is not required to commit to more than four hours in a month towards mentoring. The session will be held at a time and date that is convenient for both the mentor and the mentee. All you need to do is share your knowledge and provide mentoring from wherever you are!
Becoming a Mentee
Individuals aspire to excel in their chosen field of activity and consequently seek to improve and upgrade their skill sets. In many such cases, the individuals lack the necessary guidance and resources to achieve their goals. VCF provides the platform for such individuals in organizations or educational institutions to enroll as mentees and connect with the most suitable mentors.
We welcome corporates and educational institutions to register with our Mentoring Program. We will facilitate employee and student interactions with a global pool of highly skilled mentors. Our mentoring interactions are restricted to a maximum of 20 participants per session with an applicable fee.Sign up
