The matching procedure

1. The prospective Mentee contacts the Organizing Committee.

2. The Organizing Committee will select potential mentors from the Mentor volunteer list and a description of the possible Mentor confidentially will be emailed to the Mentee.

3. The Mentee will then have the opportunity to accept or reject the suggested Mentor without prejudice.

4. If the first attempt is not successful, then a second attempt to select a mentor will be made.

5. During a first personal meeting the mentoring agreement is signed and dated by Mentor and Mentee.
