Ugali Youth finds that young people need both formal and informal mentoring to achieve success in life. Formal mentoring occurs through camps, seminars, or other training that equip children and youth with leadership and life skills they need to discover their purpose. Informal mentoring fosters relationships with trusted adults who can guide them and encourage them.
Studies proven that mentoring youth can result in positive outcomes associated with academic achievement, physical health, socio-emotional competence, and improved decision-making skills and goal-setting self-efficacy. However, naturally occurring mentoring relationships may not be easily accessible for many youths. Millions of youth are projected to reach adulthood without having a mentor who will support, guide, and help them traverse both challenges and opportunities they face during adolescence with ease.
Our leadership mentoring program is for individuals who wish to make a positive difference in the lives of the youth in their communities
Camps, seminars, trainings, etc equip youth with leadership and life skills they need to discover purpose, develop power and build platforms that are very important to aid success in life.
Ugali uses Informal mentoring which has little structure and is based upon the chemistry and relationship between two people. Informal mentoring is bound together by the social and emotional ties between two people and tends to branch into a long-term friendship. There usually is no expert training material involved and the faith based mentoring directly benefits the life of the mentee. Both of these types of mentoring are equally important for the youth. Formal mentoring is typically beneficial as an adult, while informal mentoring is mostly tied to positive youth development.
