After a lot of effort to attempt a second cycle in a year, the Dream Mentoring Program started its July-Aug cycle. This allows Dream A Dream to offer mentors for 100 young people in a year across two cycles - July-Aug & Jan-Feb.
With the help of Dr. David Pearson and Dr. Fiona Kennedy, we have been able to invest in building a certified training team. We hope this will help us expand the reach of the program to more young people in the future.
We now have 32 mentors mentoring this cycle. This includes 26 newly trained volunteer mentors and 6 former volunteers mentors returned to mentoring again this cycle. These volunteer mentors are being matched with young people across 3 different partner centers and begin their mentoring term.
