Women’s Board seeks youths’ mentorship to curb restiveness
Women’s Board, an educational co-operation society and a non-for-profit organisation, has advocated improved mentorship and empowerment for young Nigerians to curb youths’ restiveness and vices in the society.
The board’s Director, Mrs. Edna Dafe, gave the charge at a briefing in Lagos, tagged: “Project Grow, Dissemination Seminar on Youth Work: Impacts of Mentoring and Safeguarding.”
Dafe said providing good influences and mentorship for youths would serve as a shield and guide against ills in the society.
She, however, advised youths to embrace parental mentorship and seek other mentors in their chosen field of studies or endeavour to become agents of positive change in the country.
Besides, she urged the government to partner non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to carry out developmental projects rather than clamping down youths and their activities.
ALSO, the Registrar, Wavecrest College of Hospitality, Veronica Esode, who stressed the need for mentorship, said nobody in the world would be successful without a mentor, stressing that mentorship was germane to building strong and healthy youths with the right mindset to take up responsible choices.
She described mentoring as a sustained and trusting relationship where an experienced person (the mentor) helps another person (the mentee) to achieve their life goals.
