Partners One-to-one Mentoring program seeks to achieve the following objectives:
- To develop a close and caring relationship between the Junior Partner and Senior Partner.
- To assist the junior Partner in creating conditions which improve the sense of self-esteem and self-confidence.
- To increase the Junior Partners sense of self-worth, effectiveness, ability to cope, and general state of happiness.
- To assist the Junior Partner in developing a level of moral judgment that takes into account the effect of one’s decisions and actions on other people, as well as on oneself.
Depending on the program, Community Based or In-School Mentoring, partners agree to spend at least three hours or an hour and a half respectively, a week together for a year.
Everyone in a Partnership is a volunteer, including the child and Parent(s) or Guardian(s).
