The "Konnekt carreer path" - methodology and impact of a mentor program

Katalin Harsanyi


The Konnekt Association was established in 2015 with the aim of providing reliable information to high school students struggling with career-orientation challenges. The Mentor Program was launched this year with the involvement of young volunteers (university students, graduates), which has been operating successfully in Budapest ever since, and online in 2020/2021. The association has grown significantly over the last six years, which opened new opportunities for volunteers as the organizational structure has evolved, creating the "Konnekt Carreer Path". The study demonstrates this path from application to organizer position. In addition, I will cover the methodology of the Mentoring Program and present the main motivational factors of the association.
