Role of a Volunteer:
One will play the role of a mentor to students from our partner secondary schools. A mentor will act as a trusted friend and role model to the students, and will journey with them through the program - encompassing direct teaching of 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."
