"A mentor empowers a person to see a possible future, and believe it can be obtained."
IAWA strives to create a support network for our ambassadors that includes nurturing adults, peer mentors, advocates, role models, and a cohort of positive peers. Mentors are a key component of this network. Many youth in our program don't have adults in their home that can guide them as they make integral decisions now that will ultimately decide their futures.
We are currently seeking mentors in South Africa to support our Ambassadors during the 2018-2019 school year.
Mentors are asked to commit and be responsible for the following:
Mentors in South Africa
- one year commitment with an option to extend
- meet with mentee minimally every quarter (or four times a year)
- call mentee minimally every month to check up on them
We will be considering mentor applicants until February 2018. Mentors that pass our screening process will be invited to an orientation that will take place in March 2018.
