Searching for A Peer Mentor?
JSIE’s Global Peer Youth Mentoring Network
JSIE has launched a project “the Japan-U.S. Women network-building for Next Generations” utilizing JSIE’s framework of “Global Peer Mentoring Network”. While Global Peer Professional is chiefly for career-based network, this Global Peer Youth is especially for students and young professionals who would like to be a part of our effort in building cross-boarder peer mentoring network.
What is a Peer Mentor?
A peer mentor is a peer guide who can support and encourage you to manage your own learning in order that you may maximize your potential, develop your skills, and improve your performance.
JSIE is building “Global Peer Youth Network” to connect our U.S.-Japan community youth members & friends, and empower and elevate younger generation’s as well as women’s activities and participation in the global scene.
JSIE’s peer mentoring network is a mutual support system in where you can consult with other members regarding various life events that many of us experience and get advice from them. In return for that, you can give other members advice regarding specific issues that are relevant to your own experience. Furthermore, through this network, you can connect with such members who already have or want to have experience in working in different culture and other parts of world.
JSIE’s “Global Peer Mentoring Network” introduces you potential peer mentor(s) who matches you on specified interest-basis. It is up to you whether or not you want to talk with the peer mentor. If you want to talk to a particular person, you can make a request. And if the request is accepted, you can communicate with the peer mentor in the way you prefer, meet in person, Skype, phone call, etc. When you are busy and do not have time for peer mentoring, you can limit your available time per month or mute for 2 weeks. The only condition we ask for to maximize the value of this system is that you respond in good faith whenever you receive a request. We hope that you will find new friends (peer mentors) through this network.
