Become a SAYes Mentor

At SAYes we train and support mentors for young people
(14 – 25 years of age). Mentors meet for one hour a week, one-to-one with an individually matched mentee.

There are 40 eager young people enrolled as mentees in our Hout Bay Programmes.


If you think social poverty is a bigger problem than advice or handouts can solve. If you want to help, but know that professional and personalised support is essential to doing social change well AND if you are over 26, independent, knowledgeable and experienced, with great networks and a secure relationship style, then email to apply.
