YBSL has arranged a training of trainers workshop at Hambantota on 10th December 2013 for volunteer mentors of YBSL Hambantota in order to educate the volunteer mentors on new stands of YBSL mentoring. Over 20 selected mentors have participated in the event.
YBSL has restructured and piloted mentoring programme in districts of Ampara and Vavuniya early of this year as trial and error basis. Thus, best practices are being spread in other regional operations and mentoring component of YBSL has become very stronger in Sri Lanka. On the other hand YBSL Hambantota programme known as Hambantota youth business programme (HYBP) has been implemented very successfully by Hambantota Chamber of Commerce (HDCC) since 1997. Thus, new inputs are being implementing in order to strength the mentoring component of Hambantota.
