Background

Background The Falcon Program is an in-depth program that provides young people with personal and career development support, with soft skills training and one-to-one mentoring at its core. Mentees aged 18-21 who are from grassroots socio-economic backgrounds. Each mentee will be paired with a mentor based on gender, personality, interest, and career background.

What we have

Throughout the one-year mentorship period, there will be two training sessions for the mentors. In addition, mentors will be supported and coached by our existing experienced Falcon Coaches. We will also organise networking activities for our mentors to foster a mutual support community.

Why this is important

Mentors in the 1-year Falcon Mentoring Program will inspire the youths to be contributing members of society and become positive role models to their mentees. Their support to their mentees’ journey in identifying different pathways will help them achieve their career goals.
