It is with great pleasure that I can finally share this mentorship manual borne out of five years’ experience of supporting more than 300 at-risk mentees in Kenya under the STRIVE Horn of Africa and STRIVE II programmes, funded by the EU.
The manual is intended to assist practitioners and others who are seeking to design and implement mentorship programmes elsewhere in the world. As the most prominent violent extremist (VE) organisation in the region, Al-Shabaab’s extremist ideology and its recruitment methods reflect global trends in violent extremism.
The manual guides the training of mentors to support their mentees. It presents theory in a readable format and provides examples, specific tips, exercises and facilitation plans to support mentors in their engagement with at-risk youth. Many of the programme’s components are adaptable to other contexts, and its ideas will be helpful for others to consider.
The manual is to be found here:
