Meeting with an actor
Kristine, who joined Nor Luyce as a mentee six months ago, has already undergone a number of positive behavior changes. Kristine’s commitment to the program has been evident. She is one of the most punctual mentees, even going so far as to request extra mentoring meetings. Her motivation, willingness to learn, and desire to take control of her life motivate her to embrace the Nor Luyce curriculum with open arms.
Her mother reports that, since joining Nor Luyce, Kristine has become more active, sociable, and caring. Her time management skills at home have also increased, and she has been increasingly able to articulate her goals for the future.
Our Mentoring Phase mentees have attended 350 hours of individual meetings and 12 hours of group meetings in the last three months. Meetings have covered topics such as emotional intelligence, facing fears, and conflict management. During those same three months, an additional 24 hours of group meetings were provided to our mentees in the Skill Building phase. Mentees evaluated their own skillset, discussed their personal characteristics, and thought about potential career paths that might suit them. Group meetings also covered broader topics like leadership and work ethic. After completing this portion of the curriculum, these mentees will lead the group meetings for the next group of girls in the Skill Building phase, allowing them to solidify the understanding of the concepts and pass on their knowledge.
Mentees in both phases also had the chance to meet famous actors and producers from Gyumri, who shared their success stories and the challenges they faced during their careers. One of our mentees, Siranush, even convinced her best friend to join Nor Luyce by bringing her to one of our group meetings.
