WHY WE RUN THE SHEROES MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
In 2014, SHEROES GLOBAL carried out a research with youths in years 1 - 6 of secondary school, with ages ranging from 13 - 18. The purpose of the research was to find out who the mentors were in the lives of the youth. The result showed two in three youth did not have an adult mentor. This result is an indication of the number of youths that are at-risk, reaching the age 19 without ever having a mentor. 60% of the researched youth mentioned that they did not have mentorship from their parents and older siblings, a group which naturally are in the lives of these youth and are some of the most influential people in their lives. While parents and guardians are youth’s top influence against poor choices, they may not possess all the answers, and sometimes, youth need the support of external mentors who can support them positively and with whom they can get the help needed to find their place in the society and be useful to themselves and their community.
Our SHEROES mentors work with youth and women through a well designed mentorship program to support them through finding themselves. We also work with youth groups, women groups, group coaches, churches and schools to reach youth and women who need our support.

The SHEROES MENTORSHIP PROGRAM is delivered in the SHEROES ENTREPRENEURSHIP ACADEMY and works with women and youth who desire to be guided and lead by leaders who can help them shape their future positively. The program connects women & Youth with Mentors to be mentored for growth.
It has often been said that the youth are our future. Unfortunately that future is not always automatically bright as some succumb to crime, drug addiction or self-destruction. If the Youth are truly are our future, then it is our responsibility to shape our future by shaping our youth.
Experience has show that behavior, attitudes, and relationships improve when a youth has a mentor guiding them towards a positive future. Youth with positive mentors have higher rates of pursuing an education and are less likely to drop out of school. Our Mentorship program works with youth and women in the areas they need support to help them discover themselves, build their self-confidence & self esteem and become well able to create positive goals for themselves. Our mentors help the mentees grow and close the social and economic opportunity gap, creating positive impact in their lives.
