स्कूल में ही हमारे बच्चों को बेहतर मार्गदर्शन मिले तो वो जीत सकते हैं। आज से दिल्ली के सरकारी स्कूलों में देश के मेंटर योजना हो गई है।
सभी युवाओं से मेरी अपील, एक मेंटर के तौर पर के साथ ज़रुर जुड़ें, उज्जवल भविष्य की तरफ़ में मदद करें। pic.twitter.com/pkJ3JQhtwe

The Desh Ke Mentor program involves the “adoption” of 1 to 10 public school students who can be mentored by citizens who are successful in their fields.
Mentors set aside 10 minutes each week to guide students over the phone. Interested citizens can adopt from 1 to 10 children enrolled in the city’s public schools as part of the initiative.
I would like to be part of this prestigious program run by the Delhi government. It will be a great experience to become #DeshKeMentor …

“If our students receive the right guidance, they can excel in all areas of life. We launched this program to help them chart a future path with mentors who will help them move beyond the role that their teachers play, ”Kejriwal said at the presentation.
In August, the Delhi government announced that Bollywood actor Sonu Sood would be a brand ambassador for the mentors program.
“If you are young and want to mentor Delhi’s students and want to help them in the right direction of their careers, then call the missed phone 7500040004,” Delhi Minister of Education Manish Sisodia tweeted.
