Mentortogether facilitates empowering relationships between disadvantaged youth populations and committed volunteer mentors. It is about giving values, goals and dreams.
How it works?
Mentors work on improving mentees' language skills, developing life skills, and help in their academic and career goals.
Mentoring takes place through both online and face-to-face mediums. Mentortogether operates an online platform, where mentees and mentors communicate through emails. And to develop a bond and getting to know each other, Mentortogether also organises twice monthly face to face meetings between the mentors and the mentees.
Mentortogether also organises workshops for the mentees in English communication, health education, career and academic choices.
The mentoring process involves: Mentees: identification, need assessment, enrollment; Mentor: screening, MoU, training and induction; Matching: based on volunteer experience, youth preference, shared career or personal interest; Online mentoring through monitored exchanges on program platform; Face-to-face meetings supported by curriculum in English, Life-skills, Enterprise skills, Soft skills, Career and Academic support; Workshops, career open houses and Continued program feedback and support.
