Delhi Govt. launches ‘Desh ke Mentor’ initiative to help Students make Career Choices
| Education Jagat - 16 Oct 2021

The Delhi government launched its “Desh ka Mentors” program to be implemented across all its schools, to provide students in classes IX to XII with young mentors who can guide them in navigating their higher education and career path.
 People between the ages of 18 and 35 can sign up to be mentors through an app created by a team at Delhi Technological University and will be connected to students based on mutual interests. The program will be for a minimum of two months and can carry on for another four months optionally. One mentor will be assigned between two to five students.
 Speaking at the launch, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said: “When a child enters teenage around 9th standard, there are two biggest kinds of needs the child has. First, their emotional and psychological needs… We want these children to get a non-judgemental helping hand and guiding light. Someone with whom the child can talk without having any inhibitions and be at peace… I am sure this program will see mentors enroll from across the country. We have developed an app through which anyone from across the country can join this revolution. All they need to do is give the child 10-15 minutes every day on a phone call…  The second need is that from 9th onwards, students have no idea as to what they should do in life. Their exposure isn’t very broad, the same case was with me. I did not know much about the scope of various fields. ‘Desh Ke Mentors’ will be able to properly guide and counsel the children. Third, the children hope that the mentor will help them gain a value system, make them a better human, a better citizen.”
