Mentoring Program

We support young people between 16 to 22 years of age through mentoring in London to take steps towards a positive future and achieve their short and long term goals.


Our key sessions can be divided into roughly sequential stages; for example, getting to know the young person and building rapport, getting the young person to know the community opportunities, making sustainable links between the two, exiting and having a watching brief. Services include:


1. Link Research and connection- educational institutions

3. Negotiation and advocacy

Helping and supporting young person speak up for themselves or where necessary to speak up on their behalf. For example, negotiating a role in a community group and advocating for the value to the group and to the young person of them playing that role.
