Richard Groves AUB’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer said, “At AUB, we are hon­ored and proud to have par­tic­i­pated in spon­sor­ing this event as a Gold Spon­sor. The event was or­ga­nized with a promis­ing mes­sage to all mem­bers of so­ci­ety, and one which aims to shed light and change per­cep­tions amongst our younger gen­er­a­tion in an ef­fort to stop the spread of drug abuse. Men­tor Ara­bia’s ob­jec­tives are in line with AUB’s strate­gic vi­sion of ca­ter­ing to the youth, and plac­ing them at the fore­front of its busi­ness sus­tain­abil­ity ac­tiv­i­ties.

Men­tor Ara­bia is a non-gov­ern­men­tal as­so­ci­a­tion (NGO) that was launched in April 2006. The or­ga­ni­za­tion’s vi­sion re­flects its keen­ness to pro­tect youth from the dan­gers of drug abuse, and pave the road to drive lead­ing devel­op­ment ef­forts across their phys­i­cal and men­tal health. The Foun­da­tion ap­plies lead­ing best prac­tices that have been proven suc­cess­ful in com­bat­ting the spread of drug abuse amongst young peo­ple and to give them a sense of pur­pose and im­proved self­con­fi­dence so as to re­al­ize their po­ten­tial. It is led by a com­mit­tee formed by renowned key opin­ion lead­ers, namely Prince Turki Bin Talal Bin Ab­du­laziz Al Saud. Men­tor Ara­bia is part of Men­tor In­ter­na­tional, which was estab­lished in 1994, un­der the pa­tron­age of Queen Sil­via.
