    There can be noticed a growing pressure on universities to become learning organizations. In order to become flexible and adaptable, universities have to seek for innovations, new fields of studies, new methods of building relationships with students and knowledge transfer. One way to achieve that is by mentoring, understood as one on one interactive process of developmental learning based on the premise that the participants will have reasonable frequent contact and sufficient interactive time together. In the recent years, mentoring is fast becoming one of the easiest ways of developing the skills and talents of individuals in many different organizations, including universities. This paper sought to address to the address a gap in the literature on mentoring in academic settings by contributing a case study on mentoring as a pedagogical tool to enhance student education in local community management and animation. It presents implementation of mentoring programme designed for students of one of the polish universities.
