Mentor play the 100 Point Challenge in Stockholm and Gothenburg

Back in May (long before the summer that never ended) we wrote about Swedish social organisation Mentor SE coming to play the 100 Point Challenge in our home city, Stockholm.

For those who don’t know, Mentor provide a program for youth aged between 13 and 17 years from all different backgrounds, including Swedish and first or second generation migrants. The organisation helps to provide both individual and job-related mentorship, and also provides support to young or new parents.

Due to the success of the first event (apparently 100 Point Challenge was their “most popular event ever”!) at the end of August we held another challenge where mentors and their mentees could come down and play the game for free.

This time, the weather gods were smiling and we had 14 pairs of mentors and mentees take on Astrid’s Adventure on a balmy Stockholm evening. Once again, the group had some very impressive scores, with winning team Teaterbalarna scoring an almost-perfect 99 points!

Excitingly, we have been offering the 100 Point Challenge in a second Swedish city, Gothenburg, since the end of June. In just a few months, we have run team building events for companies of the likes of Volvo, and we are excited to be running another charity event for Mentor’s Gothenburg branch this September.

We are so happy that the 100 Point Challenge seems to be a great opportunity for mentors and mentees to get better acquainted with their city, their new language, or simply to interact with each other, their mentors, and the city in a relaxed and fun way. We look forward to continuing events with Mentor in our Swedish cities in the future.

We are also on the lookout for similar social organisations in the other cities that 100 Point Challenge operates (Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Sydney). If you would like to organise an event for your organisation in one of these cities, please get in touch.
