"Get what you want by helping others" - Zig Ziglar

 

This page is aimed at connecting people with the best solutions they can possibly get from 'YOU' our MENTORS. There will always be something more rewarding we find when we live a life of giving back. LIVE A LIFE OF GIVING BACK. Anything can be given freely; it depends on you the giver.

 

It is our believe that the greatest act of giving, is providing the opportunity to empower others to help themselves plus others. It is in paying it forward that in our own little ways, we can make the world a better place.

 

Here, you can give your TIME, your SKILLS, and your EXPERTISE and LIFE  HACKS that can EMPOWER others.

On this page:

*  If you are a young person and would like a mentor

*  Become a mentor

*  Willing to share ideas as young persons with each other

 

 

 

If you are a young person and you would like a mentor

It is important to have friends your own age but sometimes it is good to talk to someone who is a bit older, who will not judge you and who may have a different view on life. 

 

A mentor can help you whether you are worried, happy or just feel like having some company. Your mentor can also introduce you to new hobbies and interests you might want to do. 

 

You can talk to them in confidence: they will not tell us or anyone else about what you have told them. 

 

Who can have a mentor?

We can look at giving you a mentor if you are a  young person from 16 to 23 years old.

 

How mentoring works

You will be asked to speak to, email or video call with your volunteer mentor for up to two hours a week or fortnight. The meeting can be anything you like. You could:

         *  Get help with home work, job interview or upcoming school or college test

         *  Ask His or Her advice 

         *  Just have a chat 

 

You and your mentor will agree on what date and time you choose and is convenient for the both of you. 

DISCLAIMER: Mentors and mentees are advised against physical contact

Dos and don’ts of mentoring 

* Respect and listen to each other

* Make joint decisions about date and time

* Do not let your mentor down. If you wish to make re-arrangement, contact your mentor to re-arrange a different date and/or time.

* Do not just fail to turn up.

* Do not ask for GIFTS. Your mentor is spending time with you because He or She wants to and not because they have to.

*  Do not ask for personal information's, and or personal friendship. Keep respectable conversations.

 

Become a mentor
