We are incredibly excited to share with you some big news: our mentorship is finally here for you!
For many young people in Uganda, and around the world, having a mentor is part of life, and usually you tend to have people you admire and look up to, in different aspects of life.
Mentoring is a special partnership between two people based on commitment to the mentoring process, common goals & expectations, focus, mutual trust and respect. Essentially, it allows young people to learn valuable knowledge from those who have experience & advantage of maturity.
As a youth-led and youth-focused organization, this mentorship programme will strengthen our engagement with young people, and allow them to look to the future with boundless hope.
The Skills Mentorship Programme has taken in 12 young people, and we shall keep in touch with them for a period of 6 months. During that period, these young people will be exposed to a range of activities aimed at enhancing their personal and professional skills and potential, while also developing leadership, industry awareness and general knowledge.
