About My Company
GenDerations programs are designed to address many of the major problems that trouble modern societies around the world by applying the art of mentoring. Broadly speaking, GenDerations programs empower men and women, girls and boys, to achieve a deeper understanding of themselves and their role as members of society. Evaluations in the US and Switzerland confirm: these programs successfully bridge generational and gender differences by employing traditions and rituals for a modern world.
GenDerations, the Organization
GenDerations Mentoring International is a registered non-profit organization based in Switzerland, India and the USA with additional partner organizations in Southern Africa. The programs employed by GenDerations are designed to guide young boys and girls in their transition from adolescence to adulthood. GenDerations uses well-trained volunteer mentors to guide young people in acquiring a secure sense of identity, a mature orientation toward their lives, and the ability to recognize and articulate their feelings in resolving their own personal and interpersonal conflicts. GenDerations is an umbrella organization for four separate programs: Boys to Men, Girls to Women and the respective mentor enhancement programs Man to Men, and Woman to Women. GenDerations is politically independent, non-sectarian, culturally inclusive and financially transparent.
Our mission is to re-claim the "art of being the village, … again", to create a vibrant community where men and women show up for boys and girls, fulfilling their natural role as mentors. We provide youth mentoring programs for boys and girls, age 9 through 17 plus the respective mentor enhancement programs for adults under the premise: every boy and every girl on this planet deserves to have a mentor.
Our vision: GenDerations Mentoring is established on a grassroots level in all countries of the European Union, India, Africa and the USA as an integral part of the educational system, youth support work, and mentoring is accepted as a societal practice.
