  1. Financial Matters: Understanding and managing finances effectively.
  2. Family: Nurturing strong family relationships and addressing related challenges.
  3. Education: Exploring opportunities for personal and professional growth.
  4. Spiritual Queries: Reflecting on spiritual and philosophical questions.
  5. Recreation: Finding balance and enjoyment in leisure activities.

  7. Time Management: Enhancing time management skills and productivity.
  8. Physical Health: Focusing on physical well-being and overall health.
  9. Social Engagement: Building and maintaining social connections.

The primary objective of the Weeders to Leaders program is to empower mentees to set specific goals and identify areas of personal growth. Mentors play a pivotal role in guiding mentees through their goal-setting process and holding them accountable for achieving these objectives. Since its inception in 2014, the program has successfully supported 52 individuals in their journey towards graduation.
