MEET OUR MENTORS
Paths lead to destinations, intentions are good but without direction young people are lead astray. We live in a fatherless generation that is lacking positive role models. Although they live in the most entertained generation, simultaneously, they are the most bored. Anthropologist tell us, “boredom has very little to do with a lack of entertainment and everything to do with a lack of meaning”. People need mentors that brings direction and encouragement, someone that will believe in them and guide them - to tell them what they need to hear rather than what the want to hear.
Effective mentoring has a foundation of love and a structure of trust, in which without all relationships crumble. John Maxwell states that "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care"
Change brings opportunity. Through our initiatives we seek to inspire young people to change their community by giving back!
