Youth Mentorship

“Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”
― Plato

Youth Mentorship

“Mentoring is to support and encourage youth to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be.”

-Eric Parsloe, The Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring

Mentorship is a powerful personal development and empowerment tool. It is an effective way of helping people to progress in their careers and is becoming increasingly popular as its potential is realized. It is a partnership between two people (mentor and mentee) normally working in a similar field or sharing similar experiences. It is a helpful relationship based upon mutual trust and respect.

Who is a mentor?

A mentor is a guide who can help the mentee to find the right direction and help them fearlessly face the career challenges. A mentor is a coach, guide, tutor, facilitator, counselor and trusted advisor. A mentor is someone willing to spend his or her time and expertise to guide the development of another person.

Personal Counseling

Personal counseling is a chance to consider one’s emotional health and fulfillment, to examine one’s relations and activities, to learn how to resolve  personal problems or to talk with someone not personally involved with a situation who can give feedback from a different perspective.

Life-Skills Training

Life-skills are a set of cognitive, personal and interpersonal skills for high performance in the industry. Life skills training helps the employees to make the right decisions, solve the problem logically, take care of their relationships and cope with the adverse situations. Life skills training helps to draw out the best in employees. It helps people learn the practical aspects of how to lead a productive life, which in turn create a sense of consistency and equilibrium.
