JOURNEY Mentor & Co-mentors


Throughout each learning JOURNEY, a YGP JOURNEY Mentor will facilitate learning activities and group dynamics. The Journey Mentor will be present in every aspect of the JOURNEY ensuring that all participants feel included. The JOURNEY Mentor is typically a young adult, who may have participated in a previous JOURNEY and who has been trained intensively in the YGP learning process. On the JOURNEY, there will also be certified local guides assisting with in-depth local knowledge and expertise. Furthermore, a broad range of dedicated people such as university professors, leaders of NGO projects, artists, creative entrepreneurs, etc. will all be an important part of shaping each learning JOURNEY – ensuring that the participants are present in every sense of the word when visiting, exploring and gaining new perspectives with YGP.


All participants will be assigned a day on the learning JOURNEY, where they are expected to act as co-mentors, assisting the official YGP JOURNEY Mentor. Co-mentors are meant to take joint responsibility for the day’s activities and the group dynamics on the specific day.
