Our Solution
Mentors & Mentees
SFH Essential Learning Toolbox
Certification

 

Education for people by people.

To us, this statement is more than just a tagline. It represents an opportunity for real change in the world of education—an opportunity to bridge the education-equity gap.

What began as a passion to bring essential education has evolved into a timely solution that leverages the power of the web and a revolutionary volunteer-based global mentor-mentee network to deliver essential life skills and problem-solving education to anyone, anywhere, all for free.

Our Business Model
We are leveraging the power of the web, a low-cost global mentor-mentee network, and philanthropic investments to provide free essential education for all.

Here’s how our program works

  1. SFH develops unique essential course curricula, made available online for free using SFH’s proprietary online learning platform. This learning environment allows mentors and mentees to join SFH and connect with one another to teach and learn, respectively.
  2. SFH trains and manages hand-selected mentors (chosen out of a pool of qualified high school and university students, recent graduates, active or retired teachers and other professionals) to teach SFH Toolbox courses to eager mentees around the world. Each mentor must pass SFH’s Mentor Certification program to qualify for mentorship.
  3. Mentees enroll in SFH’s Global Essentials Education Program for free, gaining access to SFH’s Toolbox as well as their designated Mentor.
  4. SFH’s internal supervisory team trains mentors, assigns mentors to eager mentees, and provides quality oversight of all other aspects of the Mentor-Mentee Network.
  5. If engagement is successful, as determined by Mentee’s mastery of SFH’s Toolbox, SFH will issue certification to Mentee and acknowledge Mentor as successful in their mentorship. Online rating systems will be used for both Mentors and Mentees on an ongoing basis.
