The role of a mentor in "Rahbar" is to guide the mentee in his/her journey of self-discovery; encouraging the development of a sense of disposition and the capacity to deal with occasional failures that he/she may confront in life. Through this journey some wonderful relationships evolve.

In 2010 B-Responsible was the first Initiative of the B-Campaign, a CSR activity which was rolled out in collaboration with the very well-known NGO, The Citizens Foundation.

Employees took out 2 hours every weekend, to mentor children from different schools for 8 consecutive weeks in different parts of the city. This mentor-ship initiative was aimed at the development of young people as individuals and as responsible members of the community in which they live.
