Would it be possible to get business leaders and young and upcoming professionals in the Arlen Hill community to volunteer some of their time in order to mentor aspiring young people? I sometimes wish I could have asked questions to wiser folk back in the day!
It would both provide opportunities for different generations to interact with each other and build community. Secondly it would give young people the opporunity to tap into a wealth of wisdom and experience in the community. It'll also give these 'adults' the opportunity to give back.
It'll require some start up/support funding to administer the scheme, perhaps an administrator and a website.
Why the contribution is important
Building community, bridging generations
Spreading wisdom and experience to the young people - it will help to build them up and equip them for the future
We currently have nothing like it yet.
