SABA – Due to overwhelming responses from community members, parents, teachers, students and stakeholders, the Saba mentoring program coordinators announced on Wednesday the start of the second cycle of the mentoring program in August.
The Saba Mentorship Program is a joint initiative of the Ministry of Community Development and the Saba Comprehensive School (SCS). The program aims to provide school-aged adolescents in the community with the opportunity to access one-on-one counseling from outstanding adult volunteers.
Adolescents are at an important stage of development. To help them achieve and work to reach their full potential, the program is looking for adult volunteers who are ready to share their worldviews, experiences, knowledge, support and guidance and to exert a positive influence.
“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what interests them,” American writer, teacher and speaker Margaret J. Wheatley once said. “Through this program, we can work together as a community to show our young people that they are very important members of our community and that we care about their well-being. Training our young people means shaping a better future for all in Saba, ”said the coordinators of the mentoring program. The first cycle of the mentoring program was a great success.
