We are delighted to announce we have partnered with the online mentoring charity, Brightside, to deliver Future Me Mentoring, an eight-week online mentoring programme to support young people during the coronavirus crisis. Year 11 and 12 students at a crucial stage of their education will benefit from receiving personalised advice and guidance from relatable role models.
Thanks to the generous support of our partners, from early June, up to 250 students across 12 schools will be matched with mentors who are either former students of their school or from the local area. Over two months, students will be supported online with preparing for the transition into college, sixth form and/or their post 18 pathways. As part of the programme they will have opportunities to explore their skills and strengths, gain advice and guidance on writing good applications and developing transferable skills.
We’re incredibly excited to get this programme off the ground, providing much needed support to young people and helping them to make confident and informed decisions about their next steps.
Our work to offer interactions with alumni who can help build the confidence, motivation and life chances of young people remains completely unchanged even in these challenging times. We are committed to supporting schools and colleges in any way we can.
