Üsküdar University Evidence-Based Mentoring Training Project
Üsküdar University has been providing psychosocial support through Evidence-Based Mentoring Training Project to 45 neglected or abused young girls between the ages of 14 - 18, who are living in Social Rehabilitation Centers under the Ministry of Family and Social Policies. The project, supported by the Ministry of Youth & Sports and partnered with the Ministry of Family & Social Policies as well as Come and Hold My Hand Association, embodies 45 voluntary mentor students.
Within this project, the skills of self-recognition, self-confidence, assertiveness, coping with anger and anxiety, communication, problem solving and the ability to say no, decision-making and identifying strengths will be given to the adolescents by the mentors.
These young girls' learning skills through modelling and social integration processes, will be supported and effects on the targetted disadvantaged adolescents will be scrutinized by brain imaging tools like EEG and fMRI. This is not considered to be a social responsibility project only but rather a "Values Education and Social Justice Movement" pioneered by the students of Üsküdar University.
