Induction for new mentors on April 16, at 12.30 pm at St Mary's school

Are you interested to become a mentor ? To join our group of 65 mentors : professionnals from South Africa, France, Belgium and many others countries ?

Our next induction meeting will be held on February 16 at 12.30, at St Mary’s school in Waverley
M
entors are professionnals who guide a Grade 10 or 11 learner from Alexandra high school  for the next 6 months, by inviting him/her on outings once a month and helping him/her to shape his/her future. 
It is an exciting program, which can really make a difference in the life of a youngster!
What is expected from the mentors ?
-          To see your mentee(s) at least once a month (you can bring a picnic and share it with your mentee  at St Mary’s – there a few tables outside in the garden and a classroom is available, next to the parking area);
-          Take them at least every 2 months on an outing (it will help you to get to know your mentee better while having fun) ;
-          Encourage them to believe in themselves ; get a vision about their future and improve their school marks ;
-          Help them with career guidance, communication skills and research skills using the internet (+ school work if you have time…) ;
-          The mentorship programme is not meant to help your mentee(s) with financial aid! It creates more problems than it solves them.atch these short movies to know more about the programme
