CheMento, the mentoring program of the GDCh, started as a pilot project for the first time in January 2014 and has been carried out every two years with 30 tandems since then.

The personal interests and experiences of the participants also play an important role. Because when "the chemistry is right", the benefits of the mentoring relationship are particularly great.
After the matching phase has been completed, all tandem partners will receive their respective contact details. The mentees make their first contact with their mentors. The official merger will take place as part of the kick-off event. After getting to know each other, the mentee and mentor decide whether they want to enter into a cooperation and inform the GDCh accordingly.
