We are so excited to be back in the classroom for the 2022 Young Leaders Mentoring ProgrammeThis in-person training for indigent students was halted in 2020 due to the pandemic which stifled academic activities and the digital divide prevalent with this target group made it impossible to switch to virtual learning.
This year, S.M.I.L.E has adopted 8 public secondary schools in Lagos State, Nigeria and will be training 40 Change Champions (student mentors) and at least 200 mentees using the peer-mentoring model.
The first module which held last weekend, January 15, 2022 was a resounding success and was an eye opener to the students, who are undergoing their first ever intensive leadership training and mentoring program. The first module which was facilitated by the founder of S.M.I.L.E, Mrs Bimpe Bamgbose-Martins, took the students through the following topics :
360 degrees Assessment
Personal Mission Statement
Personal Development Plan
We are optimistic that these budding young leaders will utilize this opportunity to learn, maximize their potentials and become Change Champions indeed wherever they find themselves. We are grateful to all our partners and sponsors who keep believing in this vision and supporting the transformational journey of these budding youth.
