For long term change to occur within our communities, it is important that we enable the community to sustain effective programs. At IYDE we train both an initial group of mentors to work with the youth, as well as a trainer, who will be able to continue training new mentors. In this way, the community has the ability to train as many mentors as needed, both to expand the capacity of their work as well as replace those who are unable to continue for any reason.
Trained mentors are the most effective way for us to engage the youth in our communities and create positive change in their lives that will show results for generations to come.
Please consider a monthly donation to ensure our work continues.
