Mentoring youths in mental wellbeing and character development
M.Y Mentoring is a tailor-made school-based programme that focuses on providing a safe and nurturing space for students to share their experiences, thoughts, and feelings while educating them on mental wellness and character development. Under the guidance and encouragement from volunteer youth mentors, students learn to face life issues and build self-confidence through experiential learning.
The is a preventive programme which aims to provide support and guidance from peers and mentors in areas relating to mental health, self-esteem, resilience, and communication so as to instill good mental health habits.
Weekdays (Monday Afternoons, Wednesday Afternoons, Thursday Afternoons, Friday Mornings)
Various Secondary School Sites (Bishan, Khatib, Hougang, Simei)
Volunteers will spend time as mentors to students from our partner secondary schools. As a mentor, you will act as a trusted friend and role model to the students, and journey with them through the programme. Volunteers can look forward to directly working with youths to build social emotional skills, self-reflection and critical thinking.
There will be opportunities for facilitation and training of certain segments during school sessions (for example, Icebreakers, Mentor-Mentee time, etc).

All forms of donations are appreciated to drive impact in the communities we reach out to.
"MY Mentoring reaches out to adolescents to guide them in their development, especially those who may lack some sort of figure to look up to in their lives. Mentoring is ultimately about making an impression - leaving an indelible mark on students who are arguably in their most formative years."
