Many young people cannot access guidance to explore their real career opportunities. In this ground-breaking programme, young people are assigned to a business mentor for a whole year. Mentoring sessions take place around once a fortnight in the mentor’s workplace, to build confidence and understanding of the world of work. The mentor also guarantees a (minimum) 1 week Work Experience placement in their business.
Our Charity pays travel expenses and a bursary of £100 per week, to ensure nobody is excluded by financial barriers. This provides real access and support to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds whose future potential has been limited by their circumstances.
