DESTY MENTOR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME FOR EDUCATORS, FOSTER CARERS AND PARENTS

LIVE ONLINE MENTOR TRAINING AND WELLBEING INTERVENTION PROGRAMME FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL-AGED CHILDREN

Team DESTY are delighted to announce that in October, 2017, we were awarded an National Social Enterprise Award. We have decided to use the funds we were awarded to set-up a DESTY Mentor Scholarship Fund which will further support the roll-out of DESTY with primary school-aged children across the world. Successful applicants may be an educator, foster carer or parent, who will be trained to become skilled DESTY® Mentors. A DESTY Mentor guides and supports the children in their care to learn about themselves, their feelings and how to cope with life’s challenges. DESTY® is a unique and powerful learning programme which supports children to develop Positive Mental Health by taking part in this individualised and targeted intervention programme which is beneficial for all children.

The first round of applications for a DESTY Mentor Scholarships is now closed. However, If you are an educator, foster carer or parent, and would like to be considered for a DESTY Scholarship in the future please click on the register interest button below to fill out a short application form and a member of our team will be in touch very soon.
