A Mentor with his Protege




This is my picture with Farouk after my Guinness Marathon yesterday.
Mock exams are pretty tasking but Farouk is really preparing hard.

They have English and Maths this week and hope to complete the mock next week.
Jamb is 4th April while Waec starts 8th April.

These young guys need more encouragement now than before. Thank you for doing so by bringing them our way.

Will keep you posted on Farouks progress.

Thank you and...

Best regards,

Feedbacks from Delighted Mentees!


This is part of the reports we got from the Mentees.

Due to the fact that not everyone of them have access to Internet facilites, therefore, we decided to help them post their feedbacks here. Do watch out for more. . .

"The name of my Mentor is Tola (not real name). He works with SCB, Victoria Island. We have discussed three times. The first time he contacted me, he introduced himself to me and told me everything about himself and I also introduced myself to him.

The second time he contacted me, he told me about the "Millionaire's capsule" and he promised to come to my house the following week.

The third time, he came to visit me at my house, I introduced him to my parents and they were very happy to meet him. So, we discussed about the Millionaire's Capsule (Motivational talk) he told me about earlier.

The first Millionaire's capsule we discussed about was about how to achieve my goal and he gave me an assignment that I should write down my goals!"


As School resumes today, we look forward to visiting them soonest, So, watch out for more feedbacks from Mentees on this page!


We'd like to use this opportunity to wish our Mentee a successful outcome of his Millionaire's capsule training and to our Mentor, A Big Thank You for passing on the baton!

March Newsletter

Greetings to all our Members, Mentors and friends!

Sure this mail is reaching you in good time! Best Wishes. . .

You might want to know these facts:
  • Today marks the third week that Public School Teachers began the Nation wide strike and our students/Mentees are greatly affected!
  • WAEC/NECO exams start in less than 3months! - So close! Hence, we've got few weeks to help motivate, inspire, encourage and assist those young people. They really do need you badly. . . . . . . .And, you can never tell how far your timely assistance would do in touching and transforming their lives positively. A whole lot of them are like Pilgrims without Direction/Map to their final Destination.
  • We've got a group on Facebook where you could get more updates and information about RSN. http://www.facebook.com/s.php?q=youths+mentoring+youths&init=q&sid=319a680dd07ec81e616b0d56135b6896#/group.php?sid=319a680dd07ec81e616b0d56135b6896&gid=52392858864
  • Someone "unknown" has volunteered to help tutor these youths every Saturday. He commenced last week Saturday, 7th of March, 2009. Presently, not all the student are aware of this arrangement, hence, we would appreciate it if you could pass on this informaion to your respective Mentees.
  • We've got some new Members, Join us as we welcome the following Mentors into our Mentoring Team!! They are:
    Adeteju Ajimotokan -Legal Practitioner
    Nkechi "Kiki" Damsel -Legal Practitioner
    Chinedu Obi -Banker
  • Other suggested ways of communicating with your Mentees are e-mailing, texting, phone calls, visitation etc. And you might want to utilise this period of strike to effectively engage them in assignments, activities to improve their academic skills etc.
  • Our target grade expected from the Mentee is at least a WAEC result of 5 As and 3 Cs. Sure this isn't too much to ask for!!! As this would qualify them for the CTY Awards 2009! which comes up in December, 2009 by His grace!
  • For further Enquires, pls do not hesitate contact us on info@rsnnigeria.org or mentor@rsnnigeria.org


Once again, Thank You so much for your act of Volunteerism, It's greatly appreciated!
