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 2019 school year.
Mentors are asked to commit and be responsible for the following:
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
Mentors are accepted from all professional backgrounds.
