Join Us as a

Makadaya Mentor

Collaborate with us as a Mentor!

We are looking for talented individuals with business and life experience who are willing to share their best practices with our fellows throughout the program.

Are you an experienced professional and have a lot of best practices to share? And do you want to be directly involved with our Fellows, meet them once a week and help them overcome challenges? Maybe you're a perfect candidate to be a Makadaya Mentor!


How it works

We will match each team of fellows with a suitable mentor by taking various factors into consideration, such as educational and cultural background, compatible work experiences, similar interests, etc. Each pair of fellows should be matched with a mentor that they can learn from, both personally and professionally. 

The Engagement

Mentors will meet with their fellows at least once a week, minimum 1 hour call or in-person conversation. These meetings shall not be done through texts to allow proper conversations to take place. Schedules can be adjusted based on both mentor’s and fellow’s availability, but we need mentors to be able to commit to the weekly catch up - 1 hour per week.

Weekly Catch-Up

Ask them how they are doing, how they are coping with the program, get to know them, be a trusted confidante that they know they can go to and share things with, to discuss both work and personal challenges. Let them get to know you too, you will be like a brother/sister to our fellow!

Listen to their stories with no judgment, appreciate their progress and courage. Share your experiences if you have dealt with similar struggles in the past, suggests solutions, but do not dictate what they should be doing to solve it. Be a friend who listens kindly. 

Our fellows will also receive personal development sessions, so the conversations with mentors will also help them process the heightened self-awareness and self-discovery that happened during these sessions.


Our ideal mentor will possess following criterias:

  1. Fluent in Bahasa Indonesia
  2. Between 30 to 60 years old
  3. Experienced in their field, probably working as senior management in a company or leading their own businesses
  4. Understand the importance of compassion, collaboration, and humility when doing impact work
  5. Involvement in / having good understanding of social entrepreneurship and the broader development sector is a plus, but not compulsory
  6. Willing to commit an hour every week to talk to Makadaya Fellow
