H-JUMP SCHOOL’s SAMs provide 6 hours of academic mentoring every week for 10 months to youth mentees. Long-term and regular academic guidance can help adolescents improve their basic academic skills and build a desirable learning attitude.
Also, by providing customized learning guidance for each level with an average of 4 youths per 1 SAM, it helps them develop their own self-directed learning skills by inducing their interest and motivation for learning. This will be the first step for young people to realize their goals and dreams.
H-JUMP SCHOOL’s SAMs provides counseling, career exploration, and design tailored to every student’s needs. Also, they can develop a sense of warmth and a sister/brother-like connection during this process.
Case : Dreaming of Giving Hope and Courage
““Before meeting SAM, I struggled with school and friendship and family concerns and stress. I was teased a lot for this and that, so I hated going to school. However I changed a lot as I participated in various activities such as having a lesson with my SAM, as well as talking, and eating together. As I shared my worries about school, family, and friends with SAM, l felt much better and my weariness were gone. Before I used to come in time for dinner or study time as I found it hard to even come to the center, but now I go to the center early.A youth menteeDaegu Happy Up Local Children’s Center
When I become a college student like SAM, I want to become a person who can help others and give hope and courage to children going through difficult times like me.”
Case : Finding the Role-model for Growth from SAM
“General volunteers and students from other foundations come when they have time, and there are some cases when children are waiting and the volunteers cannot come because of their work. However, in the case of H-JUMP SCHOOL SAMs, there is no gap in the center operation because they work in accordance to the center’s schedule as well as their own. SAMs also helpful for our center, and it's not only academic support for each child, they are a mentor to them.Head Director Jin seup SeoDaegu Good Friend Local Children’s Center
Because I am old, I have difficulties communicating directly with the children. However, the H-JUMP SCHOOL SAMs are similar generations being older sisters and older brothers, so the youths are greatly influenced by the H-JUMP SCHOOL teachers, and they also ask for life counseling. In that respect, SAMs are really different from other volunteers.”
