At the beginning of academic year every Mentor is allotted 10 mentees. In the progression of the semester Mentorship meetings are conducted to assess the strength and need of the mentees. Accordingly home visits are organised with the due information. This strategy integrates the academic and social emotions of educators, students and their families.

In this deliberation with the parents quality inputs are recorded by the mentors, and are incorporated while designing add-on courses, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. This practice develops trust and dedicated relationship with students and parents for their go-getter-ness.
