Guidance & Counselling

"The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.”

A little guidance at the right time can make a real difference in ones academic career and life. The impact of a mentor's guidance and wisdom is immense and can work wonders for a child’s performance and self esteem. Keeping this in mind G. D. Goenka has introduced a mentorship program for the students of higher section from this academic year. Though the basic aim of this system is to provide a trusted counselor or guide to each child, it also helps the students in gaining practical advice, encouragement and support. Through mentoring children Learn from the experience of others and become more empowered to make decisions. Communicating with their teachers enables them to develop more social and academic confidence, ease of communication, study and personal skills. They receive the guidance necessary for identifying goals and establish a sense of direction.

As Bob Proctor has put it "A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself and helps bring it out of you." the mentors in GDGIS are committed to bring out the best in each child.
