- 3MENTORS NOTE
MENTORS are DIAMONDS
Mentors help build teen confidence, leadership skills and global perspective to help them create change in themselves and their communities. Mentors find new ways of tackling major social challenges by working alongside teen communities, using the tools of research and social innovation.
Our year-long, part-time leadership program selects a handful of exceptional high school and university students for a rigorous journey—outside of school— towards self-discovery, career direction, skills development, and extraordinary real-world accomplishments through mentorship.
Innovation and Leadership can be a lonely task and we believe people need support from others with similar experiences. Since our creation, all our work has been guided by the power of relationships and collaboration to solve problems.
We believe in a holistic approach to leadership training that revolves around 3 pillars to give the most comprehensive look for our teen leaders. We are passionate about preparing them for the challenges ahead.
