is a long term relationship between two individuals based
on a mutual desire for development towards professionals’ goals and objectives.
mentoring relationship, the two individuals are referred as the “mentor” and the “mentee”. Mentoring provides development opportunities for both
partners, the focus on supporting the growth and development of the mentee.
The mentor is a source of wisdom, teaching and support, but not
someone who observes and advises on specific actions or behavioral changes in
In mentoring, there is no reporting relationship between the mentor and the mentee. Mentors do not conduct or provide input to performance reviews. The terms mentoring and coaching are often used interchangeably, and that is misleading. While similar in their support of someone's development, they are very different disciplines in practice.
Mentoring brings value to everybody in its practice: mentees, mentors, and the organization for which they work. Mentees have an opportunity to gain wisdom from someone who has travelled the path before them. Mentors have an opportunity to invest themselves in someone who seeks what they can offer.

Why become a mentor?
BC Talents' mentorship program is based on a vision where mentees and mentors can converse in an open minded, confidential and constructive environment. BC Talents will follow your progress and support you with each step along the mentorship program. We will be happy to answer any questions and address any concerns. BC Talents will give you the support and documents needed while the mentorship program length.
Our mentors and mentees who sign up for the program
are connected with the volunteer mentorship Associate.
You will discuss with him/her the mentorship program in details, review your
objectives and as soon as we have the right mentor/mentee for you, then you
will be involved in our program for around 9 months.
BC Talents recommend a face-to-face meeting at least once a month for the duo, depending on how they choose to communicate and the needs.
Every 3 months BC Talents is launching a new mentorship promotion. During this launch, the new duos will meet and they will be in contact with the previous promotions to discuss and talk about their own experiences. This mentorship meeting will be followed by a TalentsTalk event.
