The Central Leadership Program is happy to consider applications from individuals who would like to support the program by mentoring one of our fellows! Please read our requirements carefully before you fill our form. You may also want to look at the profiles of some of our current mentors. You will be contacted and interviewed to assess your suitability to be a mentor for our programme.
Criteria to be a Mentor
Our mentors must:
1. Be a member of International Central Gospel Church (ICGC)
2. Be passionate about Vision of ICGC to Shape Visions, Raise Leaders and Influence Societies for Christ.
3. Epitomize one who consistently strives to live a life of integrity in all areas of his or her life.
4. Be willing to spend time with protégés to share personal experiences, guide and coach protégés.
5. Be willing to participate in self and program evaluation processes to support program quality assurance.
Scope of Work
Task 1: Share personal experiences, guide and coach
One of a mentor’s primary roles is to inspire protégés with personal life experiences. Mentors will be encouraged to build relationships with protégés that will foster sharing of experiences. As protégés are taught to live by the principles of their faith in all areas of their life, mentors serve as real-life examples of people who are living their faith. This is not to suggest that mentors are faultless, but to show protégés what it is like to live out one’s faith in the real world (both the victories and the defeats).
Task 2: Engage Protégés Offsite
Mentors will be expected to engage the protégés on their leadership journey outside the confines of the residential camps and weekends. It is expected that the mentor will meet the protégé (face to face) at least 4 times over the course of the year (quarterly).
Task 3: Guide the protégé’s learning and demonstration of program competencies
Mentors will assist the protégés to develop their leadership skills and competencies, by:
• Sharing experiences from own learning and experiences.
• Helping protégés identify avenues to increase learning, for example, books, other peers and networks.
• Using coaching approaches to support and increase the protégé’s understanding of leadership concepts.
Task 4: Meet protégés during 2-week residential camps
Mentors will be requested to be present during an initial meeting with CLP fellows that will take place during the residential camp. Not more than 2 mentoring session are expected to be held during the residential camp.
Task 5: Give protégés feedback, Monitor and Evaluate Progress
Mentors are expected to give protégés candid feedback on the progress being made on the leadership journey. Mentors will need to fill simple feedback forms to help evaluate the progress of protégés. Mentors will also assist protégés with their projects by giving advice and checking in on their progress. Mentors may act as reviewers, including potential participation in end of program review panels for protégés.
Task 6: Visit during Weekend Workshops
Mentors may be requested to be present for a mentoring session during the residential weekends. The specific dates for the mentoring sessions are yet to be fixed.
Period of Mentorship
Mentors work with their protégés for a total of 12 months after which they may be reassigned another protégé.
Remuneration for Service:
Mentors will work as volunteers with no assigned remuneration. However, the mentor may be featured on our website and other promotional material though this is not guaranteed. See the profile of some of our mentors.
