If you didn’t hear about why we invited John Bird to come and talk to us in Norwich last week, that’s because my inner opportunist (see yesterday’s blog) wanted to launch our Volunteer Tenancy Mentoring alongside his great message of ‘a hand up and not a hand out’. For £300 we are now offering employers the opportunity to develop their staff and their brand awareness. And in the process they are able to make a massive local and social impact. £300 buys two days of comprehensive and transferable mentoring training, vetting and support to mentor a young person in their first tenancy for a year. The employee will gain insights into the lives of young people struggling to get by in a complex world and be able to make a tangible difference. The employer will see their employee grow with this experience and know that they are truly investing in that person. If you’re interested as an employer (or private individual) you’ll find out loads more on our website. We know it works and we know that our young people are worth the investment.
