543 University students profited,we aim 5000

Menti from CYDD Bursa branch - menti training

Dear supporter,

ÇYDD mentorship project is now in its 5th year and this year we have more than 180 pairs (mentor and menti) joining the program (10% above our projections for 2016-2017). We are now carrying out the project in 7 cities (Istanbul, Kocaeli, Izmir, Ankara, Bursa, Çanakkale and Mugla).

The project’s primary aim was to help the personal development of the university students and to build their self-confidence. However the mentors also have immensely benefited from this program as well as the CYDD branch coordinators and mentor-menti trainers. More and more reputable business people are applying to be mentors.

As all trainers and mentors are volunteers, the project cost is relatively low. However we wish to expand the project gradually to every one of the 108 CYDD branches. This means an increase in travel and accommodation cost for mentor-menti trainers and in organization cost of several year-end and team building meetings and activities. Moreover the project website needs to be restructured for easier survey of the pair relations and evaluations by the project general coordinator.

We do need your support to expand the project so that more students can benefit from this well designed project.

Some comments from our mentii:

"developed my problem solving abilities" "I was inspired","I felt more open to learning and developing myself"

"I had a sense of security"

And from mentors;

"I realized I could help my menti find her own way with her own methods even though I would not actually do it that way- it made me feel more mature", "I became more objective.."
