The Mentor – a Vital Figure: Creating Russia's Effective Institution
While parents hold the responsibility of upbringing, mentors serve as constant companions. Over time, the concept of mentoring has evolved to meet the changing societal needs, transitioning from an observer and caretaker of less experienced individuals to a role with a more focused educational approach. However, one aspect remains constant: the presence of a mentor to share their wisdom and guidance. Thus, the role of mentors in the lives of teenagers and young adults is paramount, assuming the role of custodians after parents. They serve as both professional guides and aid in the search for life's direction, accompanying individuals on their journey into adulthood. What role do teachers and mentors play in shaping the values of young individuals? What innovative mentoring approaches are being considered for the future? How do non-formal education and strategies for continuous development contribute to bolstering young people's trust in mentoring institutions? In what ways do business mentors contribute to shaping corporate culture, enhancing productivity, and influencing the professional trajectory of companies?
