About the MentorHackathon 2020
The 2020 MentorHackathon is a signature program, organized by our new partner organization MeetMentors. The event brought together mentors, young mentees and youth interested in mentoring and career development from across Africa, in a 1-day mentoring workshop.
The MentorHackathon took place online (Zoom) on Friday, November 28, 2020 between 17:00-19:00 GMT. The event was intended to engage mentors and college students, recent graduates, and young talents from across Africa. The theme for this year’s event was Bake It For The Cake, implying the need for young people in Africa to fully commit to the course that would enable them see the success they are aspiring to achieve.
