In these current times, alone, and at-risk individuals suffer from a lack of emotional and relational connection with their peers. Mentors play a valuable role in the lives of young people and marginalised individuals, accompanying them to better their life chances whilst developing close and trusting relationships.
We believe that every individual matters and that every person deserves the opportunity to be helped to make a meaningful change.
What is mentoring?
Mentoring is a one-to-one relationship in which the mentor invests their knowledge, experience, and time in service to a marginalised individual to support them in their social, spiritual, physical, and professional development. Once trained, a mentor is equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to cultivate and grow intentional and trust-based mentoring relationships with young people and marginalised individuals.
How can we help?
We equip churches and community groups with relevant training and one-to-one support in our ‘Specialist Mentoring’ and 'Community Programme Management' training series. We accompany you as you acquire learning, develop your programme strategy, implement your mentoring project initiative, and obtain growth and sustainability as you make a lasting change in your community.
"I would recommend mentoring because my mentor helped me a lot, and got me thinking about what I was doing right and how I could make changes in what I wasn’t doing good in. Everyone always judges me and I have a reputation. I want to get rid of the reputation that I have - most people think I am bad and should not be in school. But I do want to change and receiving help from my mentor has helped me to change."
