About Project

Broadening Horizons is our exciting mentoring project which aims to empower young people to achieve their goals in life.

In this project, trained mentors will be matched to a young person aged 10-24. Our mentors will guide and motivate the young person, support them in their schoolwork, and help them formulate and put into action plans for their education and careers. Mentors may, for instance, bring the young person to visit a university campus, or they may help the young person explore other routes to employment such as learning a trade or applying for an apprenticeship.

Our mentors can meet the young person online or in person, every week for 1 hour for 3-6 months – however long they want!

We train our mentors in a specific style of mentoring based on the Growth model – looking at strengths, abilities, interests, valuing skills and experience.
