Get Involved with Youth Development – 2

Become a Mentor/Coach

Mentors guide people through their development process by providing insight into issues, and sharing expertise, values, skills, and perspectives

Many people find themselves in critical situations where they have to make key decisions, and they often have a lot of questions. The quality of the answers they get will determine the quality of the decisions they take.

Mentors function as catalysts, providing necessary guidance to the people as they navigate through their growth journey. We welcome individuals with vast experience across different career or entrepreneurial fields to join our mentorship program.

Our mentor program connects our audience to experts in various fields through various mentorship platforms and channels and avails them the opportunity to interact and get sound advice in a secure environment.

You can serve as a mentor in various ways including:

  • Moderating specialized online or mobile forums where you can answer questions & stir conversations
  • Participating in an “Ask-me-anything Sessions” where young people can engage with you and tap into your wisdom.
  • Speaking in mentorship events
  • Organizing Specialized Coaching sessions for interested youths
  • Other mentorship platforms that you may have.
