Educational curriculum to improve mentors’ competence

JUMP runs educational projects with systematic programs and expert operating
know-how so youths and university students from diverse backgrounds can enjoy fair opportunities for education.

JUMP’s young adults work as teachers giving teenagers academic guidance for one year.
During this period, they maintain close relationships with their mentees and offer academic support, emotional support, and development of particular aptitudes. Teenagers as well as young adults in various psychological stages of development and growth may struggle or be hurt if activities are conducted without the necessary preparation. To anticipate and prevent these problems, JUMP provides regular education and training courses to its mentors, such as workshops and facilitation training, to help activities run smoothly and efficiently.

Career mentoring expertise

JUMP offers mentoring so SAMs / young adults can use their own competences to grow into tolerant members of future society. Teenagers can grow in a healthier way through mentoring provided by young adults, and likewise, young adults can grow in desirable ways thanks to mentoring by mentors from community.

272 mentors from community selected according to strict standards by JUMP are currently working as support for the happy future of SAMs / young adults.

Mentoring includes advice and counseling on a wide range of topics from adults in their 20s who are already employed. Through this mentoring, SAMs / young adults can get practical help with their lives or careers.

Mentoring is tailored to the needs of those who are mentored, and participants are matched one on one, in small groups, and in larger groups. JUMP’s SAMs / young adults are mentored 1:1 by one or two mentors and also experience small group mentoring 10-16 times and group mentoring 2-3 times in a year.
