Meet the mentors of the "School of Success" project

In a week we will start an educational project for teenagers "School of Success"!

An integral part of this project are mentors - those who accompany the participants throughout the participation. Mentoring is important not only because of the knowledge and skills that participants can learn from mentors, but also because mentoring provides socialization and personal assistance. Through our projects, we support and develop mentoring in Ukraine, because we see Mentor as a great value for society. In our own projects, we see how mentors support participants not only for the period of participation, but also those people with whom participants go on with life, those who continue to believe in their cops constantly, and those who, having become a mentor once , will never leave this mission again.

And who became the mentors of the "School of Success" project for girls this year?

Daria Kibuk

I come from the Rivne region, I study at the Kiev National Linguistic University. I study Chinese language and literature with translation inclusive. Participated in the projects of the Voice in Action Foundation and this spring became a participant in another Klitschko Foundation project - "Internship 11.0".

Why do I want a mentor?

In fact, the younger generation is criticized not only by the grandmothers at the entrance ... this can be noticed by each of us. On the contrary, I want to use the opportunity to make friends with the younger (for me) generation, I want to share experiences with them, because I'm sure modern teenagers have something to learn from me. I believe that the mentor should ensure the interaction of organizers and participants, help the team go through all stages of the project exactly the plan that was provided, respond quickly to positive and negative cases within the team and help to resolve the latter and reduce their consequences.

Julia Kisel

Congratulations from Sumy region. I am a student and study economic cybernetics at the Kyiv National University of Trade and Economics. And I'm also fond of dancing.

Why did you decide to become a mentor?

I like to make complex things simple and easy to understand, I like to explain to people what they don't understand and see how it becomes a habit in their lives.

I spent a lot of time in big teams, so I can be part of the teams. For myself, I see mentoring as an opportunity to develop my leadership skills, skills of working with young people. For others, I see the benefit in being able to adopt important values ​​and get a friend and mentor for a long time

Anna Chubatyuk

I am from Vinnytsia region, I study in Lithuania at LCC International University. My specialty is international business and administration. In 2014, she was also a member of the "School of Success". And this year I became a Klitschko Foundation project mentor for the third time!

Who is a mentor for me?

A mentor is a friend, an assistant, a mentor. A friend - because, first of all, a person with whom participants can talk about how their day went, what struck, liked, disappointed.

An assistant is a person who will be the first to know if there are any questions or problems, and will find the best way to solve them. Mentor - Since most mentors are successful students, students usually try to reach out to them.

Valeria Efimenko

I come from the Lviv region, and I study at the National University "Lviv Polytechnic", I study applied linguistics. In 2016, she was also a participant in the School of Success project and a mentor for the Zero Waste School project.

What values ​​do I think a mentor should have?

A mentor is a person who has a little more experience and knowledge than a project participant, and therefore can provide valuable advice to his team as a whole and to each individual. The mentor must broadcast openness, honesty, tolerance to each other. The mentor should also spread the idea of ​​lifelong learning and encourage the participants to do so. And, of course, do not forget about the key task of the fund - to learn to fight for their dreams through the prism of values. I think that my curiosity and love for people and communication are the critical points that will help me become a good mentor.

Marianna Shkrabiy

Hello everyone from Zhytomyr region. I am a student and study Ukrainian language and literature at the National University "Ostroh Academy". She was both a participant and a mentor for the project "School of Success" in 2019.

Why do I want to be a mentor?

A mentor is a mentor who will help when needed. In my opinion, the main function of a mentor is to motivate and guide the participant. At certain times, a mentor can become a person who listens and tries to give appropriate advice. I want to be a mentor because I want to be useful and I like working with people who have similar views on life. The benefit for me is to get a lot of motivation, experience working in a team, professional hardening. I am ready to help with advice, support; share their own experience and perform all duties in good faith.

Maria Lazorenko

I am from Kyiv region, I study political science at Kyiv National Taras Shevchenko University. Just celebrated the graduation of the project "Internship 11.0" from the Klitschko Foundation and now again plunged headlong into another project of the foundation - became a mentor.

What is valuable in mentoring?

A mentor is a person you always listen to: not judging will help solve any issue. The mentor controls and improves relations in the team, helps to resolve conflict situations. And it is human relationships that are most valuable in mentoring. I try to build my relationship on honesty, sincerity, respect, love and understanding. I believe that at the "School of Success" I will also be able to build such a relationship with the participants.

Why do I want to be a mentor?

The "School of Success" is a new step in shaping the personality of each participant. My motivation to be a mentor on this project is to be supportive of others, to share my mistakes and my path, to inspire participants to be strong and move forward. My superpowers are that I can create a smile on everyone's face. I hope this skill of mine will be useful to me during my mentorship for the School of Success project.
