Mentorship program

About the mentorship program:

The youth mentorship program is complementary to the competency-based training program Makassed is implementing with the support of UNICEF Lebanon. The program provides guidance and support for youth to allow them to take ownership of their personal and professional growth. Mentors and youths will participate in group sessions as well as one-to-one guidance hours.

What is mentorship?

[Mentorship is a] sustained relationship between a young person and an adult in which the adult provides the young person with support, guidance, and assistance.

The impact of mentorship on youth’s education, career, and mental health

Mentorship can have profound positive effects on young people’s academic and professional performance, self-confidence and mental health. It therefore goes beyond providing support to overcome personal challenges – it empowers leaders and enables youth to take charge of their future.

Mentorship will provide an important layer of support to at-risk youth as they pursue personal, vocational, and entrepreneurship training and serve as a safety net as they transition to work or entrepreneurship.
