Expectations on Parents and Participants

Expectations on Parents and Participants

Each team is limited to six (6) members, this has been brought down from ten (10) due to issues in previous years. For example, Mentors could not give each child their attention and this lead to participants being not engaged and loosing interest.

Standards for behavior have been formulated to encourage the right working atmosphere from the start of the program. This led to better working relationships between participants, parents, mentors and staff members.

Expectations for Participants
