Comments The Mentor-Mentee Program is a pre-emptive program targeting those children (10-16 years old, both boys and girls) in camps who, without further support and guidance from seniors or guardians or ‘mentors’, are on the verge of plunging into extreme vulnerability. In our camp setting, these ‘children at risk’ include (but are not limited to) those children who skip school, are school dropouts (or prone to drop out of school), are involved in substance abuse, and/or display delinquent behaviors.
