here's what our participants had to say about the program
“I would highly recommend this program, but the key is – the more you put in, the more you will get out of it. The mentors are generous with their time and are knowledgeable about their areas of expertise, they will go the extra mile and put themselves in your shoes. The mentee cohort will also add great value to your journey.”
“I wanted to seek an objective third party input during a period of change. One of the best things about the YSPN Mentoring Program is that it’s brought a portfolio of mentors across a range of industries.”
“YSPN has a lot of quality mentors so it isn’t an opportunity to be missed! YSPN works with a mission of lifting not only the Sikh community but anyone they can.”
“Getting to be taught by leaders in their industry, the YSPN mentoring program is the most valuable experience you can have. Being placed with mentors who have had years of experience in the field that you are looking to seek the most growth in, gives you such an advantage for your career and personal life.”
“Why are you hesitating? Just do it! It’s a once in a lifetime experience where you can be mentored by someone who is at a stage in life that you aspire to.”
“The fact that these successful, intelligent and generous mentors are taking the time out of their busy schedules and putting in so much effort to guide and help you, is incredible… I have gained so much out of this program and have left feeling more inspire and motivated. Would 100% do it again.”

Program Pricing and payment option
If you’ve lost your job or experienced reduced hours as a result of COVID-19 or related impacts, we’re offering a handful of scholarships covering the cost of the program. If this is you, we still encourage you to apply.
Upfront payment for topic applied for
One-time upfront payment of $150 AUD or 3 monthly payments of $50 AUD each
Who can apply for this program?
Anyone can apply! We want motivated individuals who are serious about developing their skills and learning from others.
Please view the topics here to see whether these are areas that interest you and you would like to obtain mentoring for.
Is this only for people in Australia?
Whilst the program is completely online and you can be sitting in the comfort from your own home to do the sessions, we would prefer if people within the Oceania region apply, ie. Australia, New Zealand and Asia. This is due to managing the time differences and due to our Mentors who are only based in these regions.
Is this program only for Sikhs?
No. This program is open for anyone and everyone.
Whilst this program is being run by the Young Sikh Professionals Network, there are no biases or discriminations towards mentors or mentees from any faith or background.
Is it value for money?
Typically a 3 month mentoring program with the calibre of Mentors we’ve gathered can cost between $2000-$5000. Since we want to make professional development opportunities available to anyone, we have significantly reduced the price of
the program just to cover the cost of running it, so you will effectively be paying less than 1/10th of the normal price with the option to pay over a 3 month period to make it even more financially sustainable.
Over the course of the 2019 Mentoring Program, participants reported a 75% improvement in their skills and provided our program with an average rating of 4.78/5.
This year’s mentoring program is now even better. We are extending our sessions from 4 to 6, providing our mentors with additional training, providing access to two additional webinars hosted by experts in their field and unlocking
additional video snippets recorded by industry professionals.
If, after two sessions of the program, we are reasonably able to conclude that you have not received value from this program, we will provide you your money back.
How can I increase my chances of having a successful application?
We are looking for mentees who are motivated and dedicated towards improving themselves, learning from others and working towards their goals. So please take your time and present a quality application for our team’s review.
