Mentor-menti first meeting

Dear donor,

With your support we have come a long way...2019-2020 school year will be the 8th year of our project. We are motivated and enthusiastic as always and believe we will easily achieve our goal of 350 new mentor-menti pairings with 33 CYDD branches. This means 7 new CYDD branches will join the program and organize their own teams.

So far we succeeded in making 1092 pairings, increasing the number of CYDD branches and mentor-menti pairings every year.

In the beginning, we had a professional advisor and trainers; in the last three years trained volunteers took over all the trainings and local organizations. In the last years, CYDD branches started to take greater responsibility in local organizations.

One local project coordinator's observations: "I am the mentorship project coordinator of our branch for the last 6 years. One of our scholarship students was an introvert, seldom speaking girl who went frequently to her hometown whenever she could..A year later in the mentorship program she has already become more extrovert and started to make eye contact while talking. This year was her second year in the program and she had a different mentor. This year she look happier and I thought she had really grown.When we all gathered for the final meeting of the year, she shared her joy of graduation and said she was going abroad for her masters. Her mentor was also overjoyed and said she would love to mentor another student next year.

So as long as we have you as our supporter and friends of CYDD to mentor our scholarship students, we are sure this project will continue to grow geometrically...

Kind regards,

Another mentor-menti first meeting
