The Fortune Fund Mentoring Program works to develop strong, healthy relationships between the students and mentors. Mentors actively listen, give feedback, and offer encouragement in their student’s pursuit of education.
S2Tech mentors are pivotal to the success of the Fortune Fund. The mentors are S2Tech employees who volunteer for the pleasure of knowing they will influence a young person in a positive way. The mentors give their time and careful attention to help the students continue to learn and grow throughout their educational career.
The mentors talk with the Fortune Fund students in India on a monthly basis, and may provide additional counseling outside of the scheduled call. Once per year, S2Tech provides means for the new Fortune Fund students and their families to visit the S2Tech development center in Hyderabad to see what “life in the big city” is all about. The mentors enjoy showing the students their computers and teaching them how to email and use applications like Paint and Draw. This in-person introduction between the mentors and mentees creates a bond that will last throughout their school experience.
