Mission and Vision

Mentors4u aims to offer motivated and deserving students (Mentee) a guide to inclusion in the professional world thanks to the access to Mentors4u platform, the offer of content, events dedicated courses and the opportunity to deal with young successful professionals (Mentor). Mentors will provide Mentees with guidelines and advice on how best to set up the professional path that will allow them to express their talent as much as possible.

Our Vision is:
• Free the talent of motivated and deserving young students, because the context of origin and the lack of information does not become a constraint to their ambitions.
• Create a community based on merit within which to promote the exchange of ideas and contents useful for the personal and professional growth of all participants.
• Contribute to the growth and development of the country.
• To become a point of reference and source of inspiration in Italy and in Europe for other Mentoring programs.

Mentors4u genesis

We live in an increasingly competitive and globalized labor market, therefore it is essential for students to know from the early years of University what skills are required at the time of entering the world of work, how to develop them effectively and which elements to take into considerationto set up a path that brings success and personal satisfaction at the same time.
The first professional choices of graduates have a crucial impact on their career, but today too many Italian students arrive at the delicate moment of entry into the world of work confused and unprepared. The main causes are not to be found in the lack of talent or willingness of the students, but in the absence of a structured Mentoring * systemthat helps them to understand their potential and aspirations and to build a competitive professional profile in Italy and abroad.
 

"The term Mentoring defines the personal relationship established between an individual with more experience in the world of work (Mentor) and one with less experience (Mentee) with the aim of providing the latter with guidance and support for his choices training, professional and social "

The project

Mentors4u is a non-profit initiative, completely free.  Its operation, in accordance with our vision, is based on the enthusiasm and desire of all its participants to contribute to the improvement of our country by supporting the resource with the highest potential: young people.

Our Mentor network has over 800 professionals with excellent academic, financial and managerial backgrounds and successful professional experience in leading Italian and international companies in their respective sectors.

The Mentors advise and guide our Mentees helping them to face entry into the world of work and helping them understanding their potential and aspirations.

Mentors4u also benefits from the support of a Senior Advisory Board composed by distinguished Italian leaders in the business field: the Senior Mentors.




Mentors and Senior Mentors make available their time and their professionalism animated by the spirit of "give back", determined to have a positive impact on the lives of motivated and deserving students, sharing their experience to inspire them to think big and challenge their own limits.

Mentors4u is made possible thanks to the support and donations of our Partners.
