We would like our youth members to experience the benefits that mentoring can have on their lives. Simply put, mentoring does transform lives.
This October, over 10 young people, supporting staff and volunteers will take part in this fundraiser; conquering fears, challenging fixed mindsets and unbeneficial beliefs.
At The Mentoring Lab, we know that hiking can improve lives for the better, allowing hikers to develop perseverance, resilience and confidence.
By taking part in this fundraiser, you will be supporting young people will develop a range of qualities such as resilience, confidence, self-awareness and a sense of achievement that sharpen their character and attitude towards life.
As you already know, mentoring empowers young people and creates opportunities to lift themselves out of difficulties.
As such we are doing this fundraising to;
A) give young people the opportunity of a lifetime
B) give young people space to practice using patience, teamwork, positive thinking and resilience
C) help The Mentoring Lab continue doing great work. We often provide mentoring even when we do not have funding to cover our costs.
Why is this? It's because every week we are approached by parents and guardians anxious to use mentoring and advocacy to empower their children. However many are from low-income families and can not afford our services.
Our mentoring offers parents/ guardians a chance to invest in their children, giving young people the tools to improve the quality of their life as they transition from adolescence to adulthood. Due to the work we do, throughout the year we also advocate and mentor our youth members struggling with educational injustices.
With your help, The Mentoring Lab will be able to continue to provide young people, with culturally sensitive mentoring and advocacy support, resources and the opportunities essential to reflect, explore, reframe and develop the qualities and characteristics to thrive.
We need you more than ever. Please donate and share this information with your networks.
