We exceeded our goal of 200 pairs for 2017-2018 and reached 254 menti-mentor pairs. So far 795 pairs benefited from the project.
We are very happy with the demand for our project but we now need to develop the technical infrastructure of our web platform to pair the increasing number of menti and mentor applications. We are doing a market research for a good partner to update our web platform and a good offer. We hope to start next year fully equipped.
In the meantime, we are organizing various trainings for our menti students; subject of the February training is "Career planning", of March "Presentation techniques" and of April will be "Emotional intelligence". We will be telling you about the feedback from these trainings in our next report.
We need your continued support as we will be spending a good part of our budget on the web infrastructure this year.
We are happy to announce that 3 new CYDD branches ( Balkesir, Denizli and Usak) joined the project in its 6th year and more than 200 menti-mentor pairs will benefit in 2017-2018. All mentor and mentii trainings are finalized, pairs are nearly all determined and branches are starting their acquaintance meetings.
This season 24 CYDD branches are taking part and 32 volunteer trainers have successfully finalized the mentii-mentor trainings.Even though this is a low budget project run mainly by volunteers following the main investment made to design the special program and its manuals, we still need your support to extend the project. Volunteer trainers need to travel to other cities to train mentors and menti and local trainers.
We thank you for your continual support for the project we are so proud of.
We completed the previous season of mentorship project on June 5th and are getting ready for our 6th year. All 21 CYDD branches that took part in the project this year celebrated the year end with a little party that brought together the mentors, the students and the CYDD branch members.
Total number of 180 mentor- menti pairs profited from the project this year and we had professionals from Dow Chemical and professors from major Istanbul Universities joining the project as mentors.
For the 6th year we plan to have at least 200 pairs and increase the number of CYDD branches to 28. The 7 new branches will be determined from among Beylikdüzü, Büyükçekmece, Gaziosmanpasa, Urla, Usak, Balkesir, Samsun, Ankara, Denizli, Sinop, Gaziantep and Van branches. We will share with you the new partnering branches in our next report.
The goal of our 6th year will be to carry the project to new far away towns like Van and Gaziantep and to increase the percentage of girl students profiting from the project. We need to organize mentor and menti trainings in these new towns and this means we need your support as always.
