"Nurture to Mature"

The Yanibes Mentorship Program   

Expand your knowledge  

Aspire to Inspire  

The Yanibes Mentorship Program is an international initiative that offers young entrepreneurs, employees and business owners with limited resources the opportunity to receive top-of-the-range mentoring delivered by seasoned professionals and high profile leaders. 


Nurture to Mature

With its culturally sensitive approach, the Yanibes Mentorship Program aims to create a unique study environment that provides Mentees with practical tips applicable to real-life situations and that ultimately help them improve their professional performance or achieve well-defined business goals.


Learn to Grow

The Yanibes Mentorship Program covers a wide array of topics ranging from business strategy to leadership via social entrepreneurship and includes Mentors' specific expertise. For an hour a week and through popular video-conferencing platforms, Mentors share their knowledge and adapt their teachings to meet the needs of the Mentees.


Free to Contribute

Yanibes Mentorship Program is free and lasts 3 or 6 months. To gain access to the mentorship, Mentees make a contribution of approximately 20 Euros or the equivalent in their local currency to a charity associated with the Yanibes Mentorship Program in their home country.
