THE MANAGEMENT TEAM

Since the website was launched in May 2020, we went from helping around 15 families with 10 tutors, to now, in 2021, being able to provide over 300 hours of free tutoring every week, with almost 150 tutors from all around the world. I have assembled a management team of young, bright and ambitious volunteers to help innovate and to grow Mentor Jr. 

Below are the wonderful members of management team at Mentor Jr.
