The Mentorship Initiative

The PEXIM Foundation alumni are now acting as mentors — sharing their experiences, skills and lessons to help students of Serbia and North Macedonia develop faster and in the right direction.

To apply for a personal mentor, please send an email to contactus@peximfoundation.org and indicate one or more mentors that you would like to work with, starting with the most preferred mentor. The mentors choose their mentees based on the mutual alignment of interests and goals, i.e. they will choose the mentee towards whom they feel they can contribute the most.

Due to a limited number of mentors, we will unfortunately not be able to assign a personal mentor and work closely with each student that applies for our mentorship programme. However, the PEXIM Foundation alumni frequently organise mentorship sessions for student groups. The relevant dates are announced on our website (news section) and on our social network pages (Facebook and Instagram).
