Through its SagicorLEAD initiative, Sagicor Group Jamaica has launched a mentoring program in partnership with Wolmer’s Boys’ School called “The I-Care Programme”.

“Sagicor decided to partner with Wolmer’s Boys’ School to provide mentorship through the I-Care program because, as one of Jamaica’s largest financial groups, we have witnessed firsthand challenges faced by students as they transition from high school to college and the world of work,” said Michelle Higgins, manager, relationship management and people development at Sagicor Group.

“This program will help these impressionable young men create a roadmap for success,” she continued.

The program will cater to the professional and personal development of sixth graders with an emphasis on career management, personal branding, problem solving and communication.

Wolmer’s Boys’ School is the second oldest high school in the Caribbean.

Dageon Whiteley, President of Wolmer’s Boys’ School Parent Teacher Association, said: “Our APE is looking forward to the Sagicor Mentoring Program as it will be another way for our Wolmerians to discover new sides of themselves. We look forward to looking forward to mentors who will show us our gentlemanly talents and abilities they never knew they had.”
