Mentoring and Career Development Institute of Nigeria (MCDI) is a professional body founded in January 2018, driven by the desire to foster a mentoring culture within the workplace towards helping people build their careers for optimum personal and societal development. It is clear that so much knowledge is lost in our society as a result of the absence of the necessary platforms to encourage the passing on of knowledge from one generation to the other.
The institute has working relationship with the International Mentoring Association in the USA and seeking other such relationships in different parts of the world, with a view to broadening our offerings. Ultimately, members will be able to earn certificates in key subject areas and gain proficiency in mentoring skills and strategies.
The National Governing Council is the highest policy making and approving body of the Institute. It is made up of a minimum of 15 members, comprising of members of the National Executive Committee, Chairmen & Secretaries of Branches, Registrar/ Administrative Secretary, Chairmen of National Committees.

The day-to-day activity of the Institute is run by the Administrative Secretary.
