MWDP Community-Based Mentoring
Men with Divine Purpose's community based mentoring program have “Real
Talk” group mentoring sessions until we increase the number of mentors to
execute one-on-one mentoring. Group
mentoring features one or more mentors working with several mentees at the same
MWDP has been effective in reaching
a large number of students with fewer mentors.
However, MWDP volunteers are committed to helping these young people
become confident and productive citizens by equipping, empowering, educating,
and expanding their opportunities in and out of their communities.
MWDP School-Based Mentoring
School is an important time and place for early intervention and prevention in the lives of young people. Mentoring in schools, or ‘school based’ mentoring, proactively supports young people at-risk of disengaging, leaving school early, or failing to achieve their potential. School based mentoring has the potential to assist young people with their personal development, guide them through critical transition phases, and engage them in further education, skill development opportunities and the workforce.
It is a particularly effective strategy to assist young people from vulnerable families or disadvantaged backgrounds. School based mentoring takes place at the mentees’ school either during school hours or immediately after. The primary focus is the development of a long-term supportive relationship.
