Become a mentor

Name

I find the exchange with young people always useful and refreshing. It is also a nice opportunity for my wife and kids to meet people from other cultures. Sometimes I use the opportunity to talk about issues that I have at my work.

Benedicte Lobelle

It was time for me to do something in return ... I met very interesting young and eager people. … And so I decided to invest in one of the assignment projects with two of them whom I met during these events.

Some experiences are no longer relevant, other experiences are timeless … we have something to offer. And as someone once said: the secret of living is giving.
