Project Details

What we need
  • You will be paired up with one student (aged 13-16) and attend one mentoring session per month
  • You'll be required to attend 4 training sessions in a year - Schedule will be provided later
  • 2 years working experience and entrepreneurial mindset preferred
  • Provide mentorship support to broaden mentees' horizons, offer career inspirations, and assist in building up self-esteem and resilience, providing guidance and companionship as a part of the personal development experience
  • Willingness to listen, support, provide guidance and co-work with the parents and their supervisors and share their experience in interacting with the children and youth

(1) Personal Development - The project seeks to enable our children to identify their own long-term vision and motivate them to take steps for pursuing targets that are achievable in the short run. The process of drawing up the plan and putting their goals into actions gives them a chance to consider who they want to be, and what they want to achieve – a unique and important personal development experience. (2) Mentorship - In the beginning of the project, each student will be matched with a volunteer mentor to obtain support throughout the three-year programme. The matching of mentors to participating children is made according to gender, personalities, interests, occupation/industry, family background, religion, etc. The mentor will be required to communicate with matched student at least 1 hour per month in any forms such as zoom, text, phone or face-to-face.

What we have

Training and resources on topics such as financial planning, communication skills, life planning etc.
