- 12. OUR APPROACH ABOUT MENTORING Mentoring is based on the idea that young people are supported by caring, concerned adults, they are more likely to overcome difficulties and achieve their goals. Mentoring programmes can be a positive tool to enhance the development of young people. A DEFINITION OF THE MENTOR/ MENTEE RELATIONSHIP:Mentoring is a structured, trusting and sustained relationship between a young person and an adult, in which the adult provides the young person with support, guidance and assistance.
- 13. A MENTOR IS SOMEONE WHO: Listens and attends to what Mentee is saying Guides Mentees to examine options and consequences (there are 4 communication skills used by us) Supports Mentees to set goals and stick to them Is involved in a structured helping relationship with a mentee Help the mentee to solve his problems
- 14. Stages of a mentoring relationship Stage 1 The mentor and the mentee become acquainted and informally clarify their common interests, shared values, and future goals and dreams. In this stage, there may be a lack of communication, or difficulty in communicating. Mentees may be reluctant to trust mentors, and may attempt to manipulate them. Stage 2 The mentor and mentee communicate initial expectations and agree upon some common procedures and expectations as a starting point. In the less likely event that the two individuals may not be compatible, the pair is able to part on a friendly basis. In stage 2, there will be more listening, sharing, and confiding in one another. Values will be compared, and personal concerns will be expressed.

- 16. Our projects in mentoring consist in a personal development programme with a 3 parts structure:1. Group Counselling sessions for developing self-conscience and self- confidence (important elements of auto valorisation), using modern techniques (active listening, reflection of emotions, reflection of the content from the client speech, types of questions in a good interview) and problem solving methods that will be applied in solving situations from their own lives.2. A training regarding social/ forum theatre techniques that valorise each ones personality in order to develop their resources, their potential. During the project each child will be helped in developing his abilities by a mentor volunteer.3. Individual working/ counselling sessions between mentor volunteers and abandoned children in order to valorise their free time. In all 3 stages we used mentors volunteers who were trained in mentoring techniques, methods and skills, in order to support the abandoned children in a personal relationship (one to one).
- 17. The most important questions of mentors during their mentoring relationships were:1. Why do we respond to some messages and not others?2. Why we are open to some people and not others?3. Why are we comfortable in some situations and not others?

- 20. Forum theatreas the oppressed theatre The Oppressed Theatre developed by Augusto Boal is meant at helping the oppressed people to communicate with the community. The word oppression is used for describing the state of a person who has lost the right of expressing him selves. The method allows the community (including both, oppressed and oppressor) to get actively involved in finding (negotiating eventually) solutions to their own problems related to discrimination and intolerance.
- 21. The importance of the forum theatrein the fight against discrimination Social Theatre is a communication environment that allowed the interaction between the oppressed young girls/ women, and the oppressor in the family, in the comunity they live The method allowed the oppressed young girls/ women to express their problems (through the volunteer actor) The method put the other in the public (students, teachers, parents and so on), in the position of listening first Having the possibility to stop the play in any moment, the forum theatre allowed the audience the opportunity to change the situation through their own solutions to the problems Moreover, the forum theatre is supposing the use of the common language that is very important for the effectiveness
