YOUTH MENTORING COURSE

Led by Experienced Instructors and Youth Coaches, over the span of four weeks, our Youth Mentoring Course provides digital badges or certificates upon completion.

It's a practical course about youth mentoring principles, with a unique mentoring methodology. This coveted programme helps delegates learn how to support young people to move through their goals and past challenges.

OVERVIEW

A virtual, practical course that will provide delegates with the tools to develop as mentors for younger colleagues, learners, graduates or interns. We use a reflective learning methodology to grow their personal leadership skillset and develop their mentoring abilities.

Mentorship has become an increasingly popular way to providing guidance and support to younger employees in the workplace. However, the research indicates that most that have been mentored within organisations do not enjoy the process and do not see tangible results/benefits. A need for structured mentoring practice is needed, and specifically for younger employees who have different needs than that of more experienced employees.

 

This course gives participants a mentoring framework that will enhance insight into the processes, techniques and critical success factors of mentoring young talent within an organisation. The course covers both practical and theoretical foundations of mentoring and allows the participant experience in receiving practical guidance and support in their mentoring sessions. Our programs are a social responsibility initiative. This course allows for more young leaders to become active citizens in developing their younger peers. They learn to contribute to positive social change through behavioural science-based mentoring
