Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales, Mosaic is an organisation which aims to inspire young people from deprived communities to realise their talents and potential.
Mosaic’s mentoring programmes in schools and prisons are delivered by volunteers and lift the aspirations of young people and close the gap between those aspirations and their attainment.
This service is for:
- Primary School students – mentors inspire young girls and their mothers to pursue their education and consider the careers available to them.
- Secondary School students – group mentoring is supplemented with World of Work visits and exciting presentations. Students also have access to our Enterprise Challenge competition, and an intensive programme for mentees demonstrating leadership potential.
- Young ex-offenders – one-to-one mentoring support is provided for those making the difficult transition from prison back to their communities, coupled with access to employability programmes.
Young people can benefit from:
- positive aspirations for young people’s future success;
- increasing their childhood aspirations as what they do in childhood is linked to later in life and that low aspirations lead to poor academic attainment and professional achievement; and
- decreasing the ‘aspirations-attainment gap’ is caused by a lack of information about how they can realise they ambitions, by too few role models and a lack of contacts in professional roles.
