Become a mentor
The ICAS Foundation sees the mentoring process as:
“…a relationship orchestrated to provide support to a high school student and/or undergraduate. The mentor uses their experience in a facilitative manner to support the career exploration and determination of the mentee. Mentoring is used to assist individuals at specific times of development or transition and lasts for a defined period of time. The relationship provides an opportunity for both the mentor and mentee to develop and benefit from the process.”

Who will you be mentoring?
All ICAS Foundation mentors will be supporting students who want to go to university to study accountancy or finance.
Mentoring time commitments and support
Mentoring is not a time-intensive activity. We anticipate that two mentoring meetings between mentor and mentee lasting an hour should happen within the first month of the relationship. Thereafter communication could be through email and the frequency of meetings would vary between mentor and mentee. In general, mentors give around 1-2 hours per month of their time to support their mentee.
