The new school year is being kicked off the ground and we are excited to see mentors signing up for the 2019-2020 Peraj mentorship program. We are extremely excited, this new school year we will have 2,800 Peraj mentors from 73 Universities spread all over the country.
Over the following weeks, mentors will be going through their training, learning about the program and what it means to be a mentor, a role model and support. Meanwhile, teachers in differentelementary schools will start the selection of students who will be participating in the program. We know, everybody needs a mentor, unfortunately, there are more elementary students needing and wanting to be a part of the program than mentors available. Therefore teachers have to go through a selection process in which the kids that wouldbenefit the most from the program are the ones that get picked.
By the end of the month, buddies and mentors will be ready to meet, this is one of our favorite moments and one that we look forward to every school year; when buddies and mentors meet for the first time; to see the excitement in both of their faces, we get to be witnesses of how their relationship evolves from buddy-mentee to in a lot of cases long term friendships. How by simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, they literally start changing their lives.
We are grateful for your continued support and trust in the program, together we are making a difference in the lives of many boys and girls.
