Mentoring

TEN Ghana is focusing primarily on tertiary and the high school youths. It is projected that by 2020, out of 4 people in Africa, 3 will be on average 20 years old. This age group is particularly problematic and a perfect time for mentoring to be effective.

TEN Ghana’s mentoring programs will pair a youth with mentor for 12 months. During that time the two will participate in weekly planned activities to strengthen the relationship between the two and improve the young person’s confidence and hopefulness.
