On 02 May 2019, the British Council launched the Boys’ Can Mentoring Programme in Kingston, Jamaica. With the support of the Grace & Staff Community Development Foundation, year one of this three-year programme is set to commence in September, with the start of the new school year.

The programme will feature 30 mentors across multiple career disciplines, working with one of 15 selected schools. Over the period of a year, mentees, mentors, teachers and parents will be taken through a programme to explore aspects of career development, emotional intelligence, leadership & confidence building, conflict management, communication and problem-solving skills. Through active mentorship, the hope is to not only encouraging these young men to remain in school through career mentoring but to help them to develop healthier relationships and lifestyle choices.
