I am working for SchoolNet SA (www.school.za) on a youth employability programme in Johannesburg. The aim of the programme is to skill unemployed graduates with a view to them becoming employed as entry level ICT technical support staff or starting their own ICT support businesses. We are working in collaboration with the Academy for Educational Development (www.aed.org), an American-based nonprofit organization working to improve education, health, civil society and economic development.
Hi Sophia, Thanks for your note. I am sorry it has taken me so long to respond. I have been out of the country. I manage a group called Refirement network and may have many metors that may be interested. I cannot personaly do it as I work at a national level on looking for mentors for Refirement and then to be deployed where their interests lie. However if you give me a full overview of what youa re looking for, I can put of REFIREMENT social network and see what response you geth.
I think mentoring is one way we can enhance skill development and encourage individuals to understand the importance of continuously developing relevant skilss. I will therefore be ready and prepared to participate in mentoring programs.
