This year we are delivering mentoring in two Norwich schools as part of the Inspiring Futures project, funded by Children in Need and The Youth Futures Foundation. The project aims to improve the employment prospects for year 9 students (13-14 year olds) at two Norwich schools in 2021 and 2022. You can find out more here. Referrals can only be made by the two schools.
Community Mentoring Project ending
We have loved running our community mentoring project and over 200 volunteers have had a huge impact. The funding has come to an end, so we have the made the difficult decision to bring this project to a close. We are no longer taking referrals but we will of course continue to support all the mentors and mentees who we matched as part of this project, until their mentoring relationships end.
This project has had a huge impact on both the people referred as mentees, and those who have volunteered as mentors. You can read the end of project report here.
