Code of Ethics of mentorship

Act in the interest of the Mentee

  • The Mentor must place the Mentee’s interest first.
  • When the Mentor and the Mentee can no longer continue their relationship, they must inform the YouSpace team as soon as possible for appropriate measures to be taken.
  • The Mentor must at all times protect the confidentiality of information delivered to him/her by the Mentee or by any other person having a business relation with him/her.

Conflict of interest

  • A Mentor cannot supervise more than one Mentee.
  • A University Professor cannot be the Mentor of one of his/her students.
  • A Mentor cannot participate in or accept supervising a Mentee in such a way that a conflict of interest would arise with a parent, an associate or a society or a company in which he/she has financial or other interests.
  • A Mentor cannot use the mentoring to develop his own business. But he can obviously propose an internship to the Mentee in his Company/institution.

Compensation or remuneration

The Mentor is volunteer. No advantage, reward or compensation will be offered and no travel costs will be reimbursed in return for his/her support.

Ethics of the mentoring relation

The Mentor and the Mentee are responsible together for the quality of their relationship.
