Kick-off Week Mentors

From the 15th to the 20th of February, ESN Utrecht organises a Kick-off Week to welcome newly arrived international students to Utrecht and celebrate the start of a new semester. As a mentor, you get to guide a small group of students through a week filled with fun activities and help them form a tight group of friends in their new city! Together with your co-mentor, you can introduce them to all the quirks of the Dutch culture and share your best tips on how to make the most out of the amazing Dutch student life.

The Kick-off Week program takes place during the evenings on weekdays to make sure nobody misses any of their study commitments and finishes off with a full-day program on Saturday. Please note that the Kick-off Week is currently planned in an online format. If prevailing conditions allow, switching to small-scale physical activities will be prioritised. In either scenario, besides bonding at activities you will get to know your mentor group through a series of unique challenges and compete with other groups for exciting prizes!
