Adopt-a-Mentee

Link2Grow Mentor Programme

Why a mentor programme?

We wish to empower young women to be ready for tertiary education and to make the correct career choices. Many young girls

• lack confidence due to not having good role models or parental guidance
• are not aware of career opportunities
• this leads to inappropriate (and often unsuccessful) tertiary studies
• do not know how to access study bursaries or apply to a tertiary institution

Who

Grade 12 learners of Good Hope Seminary in Hope Street, Cape Town are mentored by adults facilitated by Link to Grow

What

• Facilitate role models
• Guidance with career choices, including psychometric testing
• Guidance with application for bursaries and further studies
• Arrange workshops on relevant topics
• Facilitate job shadows

How

Adopt-a-mentee
