Global Talent Mentoring is an online mentoring program that fosters excellence in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medical sciences (STEMM) worldwide for exceptionally talented youth through evidence-based, long-term, online mentoring. Global Talent Mentoring is the flagship offering of the World Giftedness Center by the UNESCO- recognized Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation for Distinguished Academic Performance in Dubai, UAE. The program has been developed by a research team led by Prof. Dr. Heidrun Stoeger at the University of Regensburg in Germany.
The program combines mentoring with collaborative and interdisciplinary discussion of and work on STEMM topics in projects and challenges, and offers a singular opportunity for networking among like-minded talents and experts. The mentees are truly outstanding, hardworking, young talents in STEMM from around the world—and exceptionally motivated to pursue excellence in a specific STEMM domain. The mentors are scientists in STEMM as well as other practicing STEMM experts working in the private and public sectors. The program is free of charge for the participants and starts in late 2020.
What are the benefits of becoming a mentor volunteer for Global Talent Mentoring?
Mentors become part of an inspiring and intellectually stimulating global network of other STEMM experts and highly motivated, extraordinarily talented students. Many exceptionally talented young people live in countries that cannot provide them with the infrastructure to develop their talents to the fullest. The expert mentors in Global Talent Mentoring make the valuable contribution of equal access to knowledge by supporting these mentees with their excellence and experience in STEMM. Mentors experience firsthand how brilliant young personalities grow and develop their potential and talents in STEMM during the mentoring process.
