    Indonesia Mengglobal Mentorship is a three-month program that goes from July to September and can be broken into four main aspects: promotion, admission, curriculum, and external partnership. Mentorship coordinators are involved in all four aspects but can choose to focus on an aspect during off-peak periods:

    1. Promotion

    The objective of the promotion phase is to reach out to as many prospective mentors and mentees as possible and get the words out about the benefits of the mentorship program. Tasks during the promotion phase include:

    • Coordinating with the content team to create post articles for mentorship announcements.
    1. Admission

    Our mentorship program pairs each mentee with a matching mentor and attempts to provide opportunities to as many mentees as there are qualified mentors. The pairing considers the preferences of both mentors and mentees to ensure a fair process and a sustainable mentor-mentee relationship. This is done by requesting mentors/mentees to pick and rank their top mentees/mentors and honoring these rankings during pairing. The mentorship application opens for both mentors and mentees simultaneously for a period of one month. Tasks during the admission phase include:

    • Preparing applications forms for mentors and mentees.
    • Responding to questions raised by prospective mentors and mentees during the application period.
    • Screening mentee applicants (typically no more than 20) for mentors who have been popularly picked to avoid overwhelming these mentors. Note that this will be the most time-consuming task for the admission phase.
    1. Curriculum

    Our mentorship program consists of 5 main legs: (1) resume, (2) school choice, standardized tests, and funding plan, (3) essays, (4) letter of recommendation, and (5) conclusion.
