What is Zenith Mentorship

The Zenith Mentorship Program helps people with immigrant and minority backgrounds in Norway to find relevant employment or scale-up their existing businesses via one-on-one primary and secondary mentorship, peer learning, professional development workshops and events.

Through mentorship, job seekers and future entrepreneurs can be encouraged and empowered to identify and achieve their career goals, while increasing their confidence and gaining a broader business and personal perspectives.

The core of our mentor program is the collaboration that takes place between each mentee and their personal mentor. Mentor and mentee meet 2 times a month for a time span of upto 6 months.
