  3. 3. MENTORSHIP Through mentoring everyone gains when there is a healthy exchange of information. Leaders and high achievers realize those junior to them are watching and learning from them even if it is at a distance. However, with the amount of information and knowledge available to everyone, it need not be mentioned that "Distance learning" will never be as beneficial as one-on-one mentoring. It helps the mentees reach their full potential. GIve intends to initiate mentoring programmes,where provisions and assistance will be available for each member student to get a mentor from various fields of professions. This mentorship is intended to provide support, advice, reinforcement and constructive examples to help them (mentees) succeed in their various endevours principally by spending time with their mentors on personal and career development . LEADERSHIP AND MOTIVATIONAL WEEKENDS WORKSHOPS GIVE will host a series of leadership and motivational workshops within the Univesity on weekends from people who have already had accomplishmenet in their respective fields,inorder to instill in students emotional intelligence and broader frames of reference that leadership increasingly demands. This will also bring about a sense of purpose in terms of enhancing interest in entrepreneurial and intellectual discourse. Along the same line GIVE will also be mounting motivational outreach programmes designed to reach young people outside the University students fraternity and give them a chance to gain leadership knowledge. While people used to claim that leaders are born not made, it is now clear that even if you are not a naturally talented leader, there is a lot to learn given the right training. Model apprentice GIVE will be engaging students in practical leadership and management drills meant to sharpen them by arranging competitions such as “model apprentice” where the students will get a chance to manage a real working company section in accordance to the arrangements with our corporate partners.this is intended to give the learners a cutting edge launch toward their leadership progression. ENTREPRENEURSHIP Entrepreneurship education should be viewed broadly in terms of the skills that can be taught and characteristics that can be engendered in students that can help them develop new and innovative plans; that can be implemented.
