Some employees of Nestlé Nigeria have volunteered to mentor about 12009 students in the country.

The Youth Leadership Mentoring Progrann
, which comprises the Managing Director and CEO, Wassim
Elhusseini, and 280 volunteers shall be mentoring 12,000 students in JSS2, SS1 and SS2 classes in 23 public secondary schools across Nigeria.

The programme, now in its second season, is a collaboration between Nestlé Nigeria and REVAMP Africa, aims to instill the right values, skills and attitudes requisite for success
and positive personal development from an early age in children.

It is a youth-focused non-profit endeavour, with the vision to
revive educational values and maximize potential among young people, especially in public secondary schools..

Joy Ukpong, an SS2 student at Estate Senior Grammar School Ilupeju, Lagos, says that as a result of the mentoring session with Wassim, she has resolved that the top four values she would imbibe for her personal development and academic success are determination, kindness, generosity and respect for others.
Recounting her experience, Joy said, “My classmates and I are excited to have the mentors in our classes. Today’s session on values and morality was very interesting. The mentors spoke to us about developing personal values for success in life. I am determined to live by the four values I have set for myself, both in school and outside the school. I will also put in more effort in my academics so I can excel and achieve my dreams.”
Wassim Elhusseini, MD/CEO Nestlé Nigeria PLC said, “At Nestlé, we believe that communities cannot thrive if they fail to offer a future for younger generations. I am, therefore, delighted that Nestlé is collaborating with REVAMP Africa on this
initiative that prepares young people for success in life.
“The Youth Leadership Mentoring Programme is a great opportunity to encourage children to imbibe the
right values, build good character and develop leadership skills.
I am proud of the 280 Nestlé Cares volunteers, who have dedicated time despite their busy schedules to mentor 12,000 children across the country over a 4-week period. We are confident of the positive impact this initiative will make in the lives
of all the mentees.”
Mr. Kelechi Anyalechi, founder, REVAMP Africa Foundation said, “We are thrilled to commence another stream of the transformative Youth Leadership Mentoring
Programme in collaboration with Nestlé Nigeria. The programme is designed to empower and nurture the leaders of tomorrow through experiential learning.
Young people will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in real scenarios, learn from successful Nestlé Nigeria and REVAMP Africa leaders, who have made
a difference in various fields. This practical approach will enable them to develop the necessary skills and gain valuable insights to become young excellent leaders.”
The principal of Estate Senior Grammar School, Ilupeju, Mr. Olurotimi Joseph Egunyomi, said: “I thank Nestlé for this mentoring programme which is value adding
for the students. The opportunity to meet professionals from diverse fields will have a lasting impact on the children. We are glad that a company like this is playing a complementary role, assisting us in achieving our objective of raising
children, who excel in academics and character. The students and I are looking forward to subsequent sessions.”
