We know our mentoring community understand the wonderful benefits of showing kindness to others.
This month, we invited our mentors and their young people to take part in our 1000 Good Deeds Challenge. We want to encourage everyone to spread positivity by sharing acts of kindness. These could be small gestures, from writing a thank you note or cheering someone up with a good joke, to bigger projects such as volunteering.
We’d like to show our mentees that it’s cool to be kind, and that their actions can make an amazing difference. Our aim is to reach 1000 Good Deeds by Christmas!
Mentors can chat to their young person at meetings and come up with some ideas together. These are then shared with their in-school Pathways Coordinator and they will add it to their ‘Good Deed Feed’!
In our last push towards the target we’re sharing our 12 days of kindness calendar!! From paying a thoughtful compliment, to holding the door, we have ideas we hope everyone can get involved with…
We’ve already seen an astonishing number of acts of kindness from across all our schools, and we can’t wait to see more!

Challenge Update as of 20th December 2021
What an amazing few weeks of good deeds from young people, mentors and our lovely team across the country. We hope it’s helped make people smile and spread a little kindness.
Since 22nd October we have counted a total of 1336 good deeds!
That’s 336 over target and we can’t thank you all enough for getting involved. What a fantastic way to end the year. 👏
