Welcome to Mentorship!
Mentorship evolved from the concept of apprenticeship that allows mature and experienced individuals to transfer knowledge relating to life skills and operating successfully in the business environment. Mentoring is unique as it touches the core of that basic human instinct which fuels a strong desire to help young persons along their growth trajectory that redounds to fulfilling their ultimate potential.
At YBTT, mentorship is tailored through a mutual relationship between two individuals with shared common interests; mentors are trusted friends and confidantes with either short or medium-term commitment s that are consistent with providing guidance and support to young entrepreneurs along their entrepreneurial journey. Through engaging mentors, young entrepreneurs become empowered to accept personal responsibility for their lives, business and community.
Value and Benefits of Mentorship
Mentorship offers phenomenal value and benefits to both mentors and mentees; it inculcates a deep sense of pride and satisfaction within mentors knowing that they’re contributing to the development and success of the next generation of entrepreneurs.

Sharing the Mentorship Experience
“From the time I started working, co-workers would often approach me for advice on both personal and work-related issues”
“I also pursued a program in entrepreneurship which focused on knowing your market and niche and that’s when my passion flourished as I knew my niche is caring for children with special needs.”
“Since becoming a Mentor, I’ve met some very creative and innovative young entrepreneurs who do possess all the critical thinking skills but have been able to scale up their mindsets and ultimately fulfil their ambitions.”
“I needed a safe forum where I am able to share and exchange and overcome my challenges in the process.”
