SSP Partners with Heartlines


ssp-heartlinesStudent Sponsorship Programme (SSP) has partnered with Heartlines as its training partner, a development that is strengthening SSP’s mentoring programme.

Heartlines is a venture aimed at helping people live good values through the media, values initiatives and social networking.

One Heartlines facilitator for the programme’s training workshops described mentoring as a learning curve for both parties – the mentor and the mentee. With this in mind, the workshops are aimed at equipping mentors with essential skills that could prove useful in their mentoring journey, including how to deal with challenges that they may encounter.

Qualifying SSP mentors receive a Mentor’s Guide complete with a DVD. To receive a copy of the Heartlines forms that are required to be completed on application, contact Meriam Mahlatsi at SSP on 010-206-0162, or e-mail:

The annual Mentors session will be held on 14 October 2009 at NBC’s Head Office in Braamfontein. As with the regular mentor training workshops, this event is a must for those who want to share their experiences as a mentor and those who want to glean this information by listening to these encounters.
