The forum is one of the key pillars of AYS; AYS was established to provide young and talented scientists, across Africa, opportunities for them to reach out to the world and contribute meaningfully for the development of our dear continent, Africa. This forum will serve as a fulcrum for the birth, fertilization and launching of ideas to the world. The mentees will have unrestricted access to mentors, online and offline, to guide them through in their careers. Our mentors have being selected and still been selected with a high standard for scientific excellence, integrity, and love for an impactful life.


The mentor-mentee relationship is about sacrifice, commitments, and responsibilities. To be able to discharge and execute these obligations, there must be a sound and healthy agreement of the mentors accepting the mentee(s) honestly and sincerely, and vices versa. When this is well adopted expected outcomes from the relationship would easily be achieved. Some expectations from mentors.

  1. They should have a copy of AYS brochure containing what AYS is all about, its program, mission and vision. That will give them an idea of the task ahead.
  2. We would request for mentors’ readiness to welcome and have listening ears to mentees’ challenges and be ready to be of help and rescue. Mentees should also be free to access some of the mentors for information and assistance in various institutions and capacities.
  3. Mentees may request access to meet mentors in their various labs and institutions to use their facilities and probably learn some skills and/or collaborate with them
  4. Mentors should be to serve as facilitators and/or speakers in our webinar meeting to share their experiences and treat some topics related to their area of specializations or experiences.
  5. Mentors should also be ready to accept our invitations for subsequent programs such as seminars or workshops.
