Triangular Mentoring Model(Basic)

Join Us to Maximize our Potential

Triangular mentoring

Teenager & university student volunteers + university students & members of
community providing career mentoring

Teenagers-SAMs-mentors from community share and learn in a virtuous circle
We are creating a society in which all can
enjoy opportunities to learn without discrimination.

JUMP’s triangular mentoring model connects youths with SAMs and SAMs with mentors from society so all can continue to participate.
It gives motivation to all participating entities so they can grow incrementally.

What is a SAM?
At JUMP, young adult/university student mentors are called SAM.
A SAM is a “student as a mentor” and refers to a young adult or university student volunteer who shares his or her knowledge with
teenagers as they grow together.
SAMs mentor teenagers for one year and serve as role models offering academic guidance and emotional support.


JUMP SAMs drive change as prepared teachers
for youth through motivation and systematic training.

Academic guidance

SAMs spend time with teenagers to provide academic mentoring for about 6-8 hours per week for one year. They improve teenagers’ basic skills and provide interest and motivation while helping youth realize their goals and dreams.

Emotional support

SAMs provide support via customized counseling at teenagers’ level as well as career exploration and planning. They form bonds of sympathy and closeness through this process. SAMs are role models who contribute to establishing desirable values and attitudes in teenagers.

Career mentoring

JUMP dreams of solving societal problems
with young adults and university students, the future leaders of society.

SAMs undergo a series of courses in education, training, and mentoring to develop as tolerant, talented people. Just as SAMs communicate with teenagers and support their growth, mentors from society who believe in JUMP’s vision help SAMs to integrate into society through expert mentoring in each field.

Soft skills?
refers to mental skills such as cooperative skills, a sense of responsibility,
problem-solving skills, and communication skills rather than technical/practical skills

(as of July 2019)



JUMP provides mentoring so SAMs can use their own competences and develop as talented members of future society. Mentoring includes advice and counseling on a wide range of topics from adults in their 20s who are already employed.
