Mentoring programme

About the programme

Every year, the French Chamber's mentoring programme matches ambitious young professionals with senior business executives as part of a two-way learning experience to further careers and enrich understanding.

The guidance given by a senior mentor can go a long way in helping a young mentee navigate the early stages of their career and understand the nuances of the business world.

Similarly, mentors are often looking to enrich their own professional experience by offering their advice and learning from tomorrow's talent.


Applications for the 2020 edition are currently closed.

Who can join? 

The mentoring programme is for French Chamber members only.


Mentees: Young professionals with at least one year of significant work experience
