LINK2GROW MENTOR PROGRAMME

We launched our Mentor Programme on Wednesday the 28th of June 2017 at Good Hope Seminary in Gardens, Cape Town. There are currently 30 mentor-mentee pairings. Our aim is to empower young women to be ready for tertiary education and to make the correct career choices.

Our activities this year included:
• A launch event where the pairing of the mentors and mentees took place and the girls were addressed by an inspirational speaker.
• Facilitating and sponsoring psychometric interest testing by a registered educational psychologist for all the mentees.
• A talk by former Carte Blanche presenter, Ruda Landman. She addressed all the grade 11 and 12 girls.
• Facilitating the provision of menstrual cups (through Sarah Jacobs from M Power Cups) to girls at the school.
• A sponsored mentor fellowship event at the offices of Allan Gray.
