The Power of Mentorship

“An important part of fostering intergenerational learning is mentorship. Find yourself a political ally. A mentor who can explain the unwritten rules. Who can do translations for you when you say something that sounds different to what you meant and someone who can intercede for you when a public pronouncement that you make rubs people the wrong way and someone who can defend you when you are not there. Someone who explains why the public service or a political party that you are part of reacts in a certain way , why they are not willing to do things and be more active on social media or use technology to reach out to the youth or have more intergenerational dialogue. Mentors do assist in bridging the gap between the rhetoric and realities of youth inclusion.” H.E Madame Monica Geingos
