"For me, mentorship or coaching under-19 team is really helping young people on their journey, the same journey possibly that I had on. It's really an opportunity. It gives me a platform to share my experiences, some of the learning I had over 20 years of sports," Dravid said at a program organized by GoSports Foundation here.
The program seeks to promote young athletes in different disciplines and groom them for Olympics by providing personalized mentorship from Dravid, the former India batting stalwart who is currently the coach of both India Under-19 and India 'A' cricket teams.
Speaking about his association with GoSports Foundation program at a media meet here, Dravid said it afforded him a chance to set young people on a path similar to the one he took when growing up in cricket.

"To be able to try and hopefully help a lot of young athletes in fulfilling their dream and making their journeys possibly bit easier in a difficult and tough environment," the former India captain said.
"It has been exciting, fun part of being retired now, to coach cricket teams or under 19 or working with these 19 athletes with GoSport Foundation," he said.
The Aditya Birla Financial Services Group yesterday joined hands with the Rahul Dravid Mentorship Program, which is aimed at supporting the country's next generation Olympians.
