MENTORING PROGRAMME
Mentoring is a professional relationship in which an experienced person assists select Visamo kids in developing specific skills and knowledge that will enhance their academic and personal development and prepare them for life after XII- after they step out of the shelter home. It is part of the “Bridge Out” programme of VKF. The mentoring relationship is built on mutual trust, respect and communication, and
involves both parties meeting regularly to exchange ideas, discuss progress and set goals for further development. A mentor does not need to know, or to provide all the answers; instead the mentor encourages the mentee to use their available resources to identify solutions.
 
Objectives of Mentoring @ VKF:
 
a. The outgoing student of VKF is ensured of social – emotional support to help him/her sustain the phase of stepping out the institutional care
b. To provide the students with emotional infrastructure that prepares them to embrace higher education and cope with newer challenges in life outside VKF
c. To provide students with role models.
d. To ensure that the investment made in the student so far by the foundation is optimized.
