The Mentoring exchange program is a separate, and an addition to the ICD Program and requires a separate application.

“The word mentor is a very old term that derives from the name of the Master of Telemachus, the son of Ulysses who had been appointed to look after him during the war in which the young man would have participated for the first time. Recognised today as a person who knows a wide range of secrets on a specific topic or activity, he therefore brings a lot of knowledge with him and it is important that he transfers it to others so that it does not get lost.

The mentor’s work is called Mentoring to define the real activity of the person rich in knowledge who transfers it to another. This activity is important and is recognised as very important.

The mentor takes care of instilling confidence and encouragement, helping the student to orient himself and believe in himself, becoming more aware of what he is.
