“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.” - John C. Crosby
This programme is implemented at the university level for juniors and first years coming from FBA partner schools across South Africa. The programme is designed to allow mentees (first years) from FBA partner schools, and partner organizations to have a smooth, safe and simple transition from high school to university. This is also to ensure that our beneficiaries do not feel alone and be excluded in higher education. The strong system of mentorship allows the senior students (Mentors) to guide the mentees by sharing their experiences, study materials, and strategies to enable the mentees to progress in higher education. The mentors are senior students who may or not be in the same field of study. The mentors through the mentorship offer moral and academic support throughout the mentees academic journey. The mentees are also linked to professional mentors for corporate and work readiness exposure.
