A mentoring program is available for participants of the Girls Go IT course, organized by the TRY IT Foundation. These are 1:1 meetings, during which the students could talk to mentors of their choice about everything related to the IT industry.
Mentors are always people with experience in the industry. The Girls Go IT mentoring program helps participants to look at their skills differently. During the talks, they can find out in which areas it is worth developing, what to pay attention to when planning their career, and see that the IT industry is open to women and it is worth deciding to develop in this direction.
In feedback on our courses, participants often emphasized that the mentoring program was a very valuable experience for them and helped them increase their self-confidence:
