Core Mentoring Curriculum

- Understanding education and career pathways
The mentoring curriculum aims to complement the education and career guidance (ECG) support offered in school. Mentor’s role is to offer guidance and help to breakdown the goals to help youths achieve their education and career aspirations.
The Gift of Mentoring: A Guide for Mentors
‘The Gift of Mentoring: A Guide for Mentors’ is a comprehensive manual produced by Youth Mentoring Office to guide mentors in their mentoring journey. The manual complements the Gift-Centred Mentoring (GCM) training that mentors undergo before deployment. It aims to aid mentors in better understanding the GCM philosophy through exciting infographics and videos, support them in rapport building with mentees and share available resources that mentors can tap on to guide better and support their mentees.
