NYP Mentors are a group of enthusiastic volunteers who commit to weekly academic coaching as well as enrichment and life skills workshops to make a difference in the lives of primary & secondary school students.
NYP Mentors not only serve as mentors and role models to these younger students, but befriend them as Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Seeing the improvement in the schoolwork and personal development of their Mentees is one of best feelings a Mentor can receive in return. As mentors, members learn how to manage mischievous students, encourage weaker ones and at the same time, practice greater patience and empathy. By cultivating NYP's leadership values of Respect, Resilience, Integrity, Caring and Teamwork among members, the Club is able to fully appreciate the experience of Mentors to younger teens as they “be the change that we wish to see in the world.”
