I am from South Africa, and I have learnt so much from these videos – thank you so much! I feel like some of this information should be shared widely in South Africa, so that we can better understand the challenges that face the teens in townships!
I must say that I am still nervous to become a Video Mentor to a NetBuddy, but am hopeful and excited that I can really add value to a young teen’s life.

This training module is well put together. I greatly appreacite how descriptive it is in terms of what to expect. While I’m still a little nervers, it had done a great job by calming my anxiety :sweat_smile:. I am looking forward to learning more, and having a positive impact on a Mentee and the Infinite Family Organization.

I truly enjoyed these training sessions. I’m so glad that I chose this program to volunteer. So many children didn’t live to get the help they needed, and so it’s my pleasure to be of assistance in anyway to help push the younger generation into something positive. This is what we as adults shoutld want to do, to teach our youth that they can be whatever they want to be as long as they put their minds into it and keep on pushing for excellence.

I am so impressed with the content of these training modules! I learned so much about South Africa – languages, cultures, history, land, natural resources, regions, daily life, people, etc. And I learned so much about the program – how it is organized, core values, goals, involvement and success by using experts within the local areas, measurements of success, etc. And hearing directly from the founder (Amy – you are amazing and so impressive!), the key individuals, the local teams, and of course – the students themselves – was so inspiring! I am very excited to begin with such a well-organized program and work with a student and impact them in a positive way!

I was truly impressed and the knowledge about the child or youth discussed in the videos. At first I felt sorrow, then I realized that I may have an impact in someones life.

This training course is very educative and amazing! It touched my heart deeply to see how the children overcome so many challenges in life and still remain resilient. As an immigrant person who used to live in a war-torn and underdeveloped country when I was a little girl, more than ever I wanted to help these children to gain knowledge and achieve their goals. Thank you for the information you provided through the training. It is wonderful!

Wow! Amazing training modules! I learned so much about S. Africa including the culture and the issues that young people face. I am so excited to start my journey with Infinate Family!

This was a well-orchestrated training course! It was very engaging for me to go through all the sessions — informative about South Africa, the program, and the lives of the mentees! This is an incredible organization helping so many teens in the country where my husband is from – I feel even more connected to it now. I’m excited about the prospect of being paired with my Net Buddy very soon! In these challenging times we’re in, I’m glad to be able to support a Net Buddy!

I feel so inspired and moved by these videos. This validates that I am making the right choice by being part of the infinite family! I am committed to this program and take this program very seriously. Looking forward to learning together and make an impact.

I enjoyed the content in these videos, now I know what to expect or what is expected of me as a Mentor, I also learn a lot about South Africa

I am still amazed at how great of an initiative this is and I am excited to see infinite family grow and reach more underprivileged areas in South Africa because getting out of such communities is very difficult without proper guidance.

I found these training sessions to be really helpful and informative! My knowledge of South Africa and the challenges faced by many of its young people has grown a lot. While I’m still a little nervous at the prospect of becoming a Mentor to a Net Buddy, I’m confident in all the help that will be available to both me and my prospective Net Buddy and I’m excited to get started!
