Our Mentoring Service is aimed at supporting and encouraging current students of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, to manage their learning in order to maximise their goals, develop their skills, improve their performances, reach their full potentials and become the person they aspire to be.
Today's university students must cope with far more personal and social pressures than previous generation of students. How to manage life challenges, leisure time, academic work, extracurricular activities, and other social demands is often very difficult for the students. Early intervention through a structured mentoring relationship may be able to give them the tools and support they need to deal effectively with these pressures and to support their personal development and self-attainment.
There are limitations in the Nigerian Education system; universities are no longer places where young people can gain some moral fibre, many Nigerian students struggle with the notion of work and career. Level of unemployment is exceedingly high. Often, many of them are not sure what they want to do, how to contribute to society, what their strengths are, or what steps to take in exploring workplace opportunities. Though, making money is important but knowing how to go about securing satisfying career is something few of them learn through trial and error.
One of the ways to address these issues is Mentoring.
The role of a Mentor in this scheme falls into four categories:
OSUDIAN provides guideline designed as a reference for all our mentors and one they can refer to later for deeper clarity and understanding regarding their relationship with their mentee. This guide also gives mentors the necessary information to be effective in their match, to get them started and to provide adequate guidelines for maneuvering within the mentoring relationship. However, there is expectation that mentors will pursue ongoing training in order to expand their own knowledge base.
