Recipe of mentoring

“There is no single recipe, but there are many examples of unique, effective solutions that we want to find during our contest and to submit to the Federal forum “Mentor”, and then in the district forums. There are many good corporate mentoring programs, defined in internal documents — operating in NPO “Saturn” or the program “the Future of white metallurgy” in the CHTPZ for students of Pervouralsk metallurgical College. In JSC “Company Sukhoi” has developed a special matrix for the selection of mentors,” she said.
Cumshewa added — there are a lot of projects built on pure enthusiasm and designed for children. As an example, she cites Samara Studio “Friend”, whose leader Liliya Tarasova more than 50 years, teaches the children to journalism. “Or Nicholas Varuhin from Veliky Novgorod, which, together with the guys from his young sailors Club for the past few decades repairing old ships and goes in flight. Another example is a teacher Leonid Bakulin from Nizhneudinsk, Irkutsk region, organized in the boarding school club “Young railwayman” she said.
