Youth mentoring charity YouthNet received a $5,000 lift from Bermuda Aviation Services this week.

As part of the BAS Group corporate social responsibility programme, the company presented Clare Mello, executive director for YouthNet, a cheque to help support their school-based mentoring programme.

Chris Phillips, account associate at BAS Group of Companies subsidiary, CCS, said: “We’re delighted to be able to support YouthNet in its mission to empower students through school-based mentoring. Supportive, healthy relationships help young people to increase their self-confidence, interpersonal relationship skills and give them a better perspective on life.”

Meanwhile, Ms Mello said the charity was grateful for the support, adding: “We have been able to reach and serve almost 4,000 students in Bermuda and it is only with the support of local businesses like BAS that we can succeed in our mission to provide mentorships to students to enable them to make positive life choices.”
