Aurora Youth Options has been providing technical expertise to the Ngao Societ of Kenya in their development of a referral and mentoring program build on the Aurora Youth Options model and adapted to the environment of Nairobi. Vicki was invited to Kenya to meet with the developers, where she spent five days working closely with their amazing staff, looking for processes and solutions that would work for them. Since AYO's inception it has been a goal to share the program blueprint with interested communities. Kudos to the AYO team for their international influence and to the Ngao Society for building for the future in their community. 










Aurora Youth Options Mentor Program and one of our matches were highlighted on Aurora’s Channel 8 News station during National Mentoring Month. AYO's clip explained how important and impactful mentoring is, it also showed how a mentoring relationship can look like and how much fun the pair can have together.
