Mentorship & Leadership at Himalayan Children’s Charities
HCC students in the Signature and PEAK Programs participate in innovative Mentorship Training. Mentorship aims to shift the paradigm for at-risk children from a position of an unwanted and marginalized victim, to a life of empowerment, dignity, self-esteem, and self-fulfillment. Mentorship inspires self-awareness and gratitude by encouraging each student’s individual talents, skills, and passions. The program teaches communication and leadership skills, emotional management, and team building within a community. Students are coached by trained professionals and are also paired with an older peer within the program, both helping to guide them through adolescence and into a career.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
