Empowering students to make positive life choices through school-based mentoring.
Since its inception in 1996, YouthNet, a local registered charity, has worked to unlock the potential in Bermuda's youth, stemming from the belief that all young people possess strengths and abilities necessary to succeed in life. The school-based mentoring programme seeks to align the strengths of these young people (mentees) with the strengths of adults and peers (mentors) in a positive and nurturing environment; promoting opportunities for young people to thrive through positive relationships. YouthNet has grown from traditional mentoring at one middle school, to now providing mentors to schools across the island (pre-K to senior) though our Traditional, Reading and Peer programmes. YouthNet volunteer mentors spend one hour per week in school with their mentees building meaningful relationships through reading, advising and, in many instances, just having fun. Our mentors are carefully screened and matched with students based on the recommendations of guidance counselors and teachers.
