Mentoring: Beneficial in many ways (March 22)

*This program is for both onboarding and regular students*

Due to great success of last years, we again focus on opportunities for students within the Mentor Program Friesland, either as a mentor or as a mentee. Moreover, we offer the opportunity to meet professionals who want to help you in things you need as a student, as a young person, or as a starting professional.

This Wednesday we will offer an engaging program in which you will hear about mentoring and what it can do for you personally. You will meet interesting people who can mean something to you: professionals from different fields who are not only available as mentors, but can also help you getting a better grip on the pillars of X-Honours. At 17.30 we will have some drinks and bites.

Groningen and Emmen will have their own programme.
