The final bell is about to ring and school will be out for the summer for another year! The 2018/2019 school year has been our busiest and most exciting ever. In the past 12 months, we’ve brought mentoring to 6 new Local Authorities and there are now more than 1000 mentors matched and meeting young people across 46 schools! But we’re not even close to being done.
While we plan on doubling the number of young people supported, what remains most important is the small steps we all can take. Our mentors spend just one hour a week supporting their young person, but this small action has enormous power.
This is the Ripple Effect of mentoring. When young people are supported to be their best, everyone benefits. Our schools see the difference, communities feel a change and organisations see the impact in the next generation of employees.
Thank you to our mentors, partners, and volunteers for all the hard work you do each and every day for our young people. You are part of something truly special.
