Become A Mentor

Are you a student living in Kalmar?
Are you interested in meeting people from around the world?
Take a chance to become an “ESN mentor 2017!"

ESN Kalmar is looking for mentors for the incoming international students for the fall semester 2017.

Have you always been interested in spending a semester abroad? Have you already taken part in an exchange? Or are you just interested in different cultures and want to make friends from all over the world? Then you should become a mentor!

As a mentor you will be in contact with one (or more if you'd like) of the international students coming to Kalmar. You might help them pick up their keys from KalmarHem, meet them at the station when they arrive, and show the student how to find their way around our lovely city. The main thing is to be there for them when they have questions and need your help, for example by answering questions before the student's arrival in Kalmar.

You will be able to share Swedish culture with someone while at the same time getting to know a lot about their culture. Being a mentor is a great experience, and many long-lasting friendships have started this way. It’s a great opportunity and an awesome experience to help an international student adjust to living in Kalmar. Like most institutions, ESN Kalmar also arranges an introduction week for the new students that includes a diverse variety of activities which, of course, mentors can participate in.
