What is X-CITE?
X-CITE is a wellbeing mentoring program to designed to help youth mentees build skills that lead to a happy and meaningful life. We are using an evidence-based program shown to improve wellbeing.
Mentoring will be done in small-group settings of 2 trained mentors with 4-5 youth mentees, meeting once a month, over 9 sessions. Our trained wellbeing mentors come from a variety of backgrounds, from banking and finance, healthcare, to arts and design.
Through X-CITE, we seek to support youths who want to learn skills to improve their mental resilience, want some guidance with careers/school, or are experiencing stressors.
