Since 2015, Creative Mentorship builds, gathers and supports a community of motivated and socially responsible individuals, who recognise mentorship as a form of lifelong learning, knowledge and experience exchange therefore supporting young and prospective professionals.
By building a wide network of potential mentors, Creative Mentorship is able to provide better support for the mentees. At the same time, knowledge, skills, contacts and other resources available to mentors through the Pool of Mentors, can be valuable for their own personal and professional development. The Pool of Mentors currently numbers more than 100 members from different professional areas. Only a portion of them takes part in the active CM cycle; all other members have the opportunity to participate in the mentorship training, workshops, lectures and meetings, as well as in providing short-term support and advice to mentees.
Creative Mentorship mentors are leading professionals who come from different generations and disciplines from Serbia and abroad, identify themselves with the values of the programme and participate in it pro bono. They are experts in the field of culture, business, politics, marketing, media, education, science, activism, diplomatic relations, etc. who want to share their rich professional and life experience with younger generations and thereby invest in people and communities.
In the first three programme cycles, mentors were local and international professionals, such as: Jasna Dimitrijević, General Manager of the Kolarac Foundation; Aida Ćorović, human rights activist; Dušan Tomić, KPMG partner; Tony O’Brien, former Director of the British Council for the Western Balkans; Mette Kjuel Nielsen, former Danish Ambassador in Serbia; Marija Desivojević Cvetković, Delta Holding Vice President; Maja Lalić, Creative Director of Mikser; Olga Svoboda, Director of GI Group HR Solutions; Branko Dimitrijević, professor and art theoretician; Milan Petrović, President of the Serbian Association of Managers; Borut Vild, one of the leading graphic designers in the region and a professor, and many others.
