51 new mentees have been paired-up with their new mentors for this year’s Chamber of Commerce sponsored mentorship programme.
Parents followed their teenagers to the Loyola Hall at St. Ignatius Catholic School on Tuesday evening (Oct 11), meeting with mentors to discuss their future.
Chamber CEO Wil Pineau said the mentorship programme is preparing students for the competitive nature of the job world and said an international approach to mentorship will make Cayman’s students more marketable.
“What the student-mentor relationship is, it’s not only about Cayman it’s about real life experiences beyond our borders and so they get a better appreciation of how difficult it is to get employment in other countries for example and the skills that are needed for some of the top jobs,” Mr. Pineau said.
Public school students made up 30 of the 51 new mentees a part of this year’s programme.
