Mentorship Program

Introduction:
School Without Walls aims at improving the lives of our kids not only academically but as total persons, in term of character, ambition and the way they view the world. In view of this, Life Builders Initiative introduces the mentorship program, in which positive minded young individuals interact one-on-one with our children of the School Without Walls. Mentoring is the presence of a caring individual who provides a young person with support, advice, friendship, reinforcement and constructive role-modelling over time. Mentoring is about building relationships.
