For young people living in Tower Hamlets, Newham, City, and Hackney, we currently have grant funding to offer six months of free mentoring to 40 young people from black and global majority backgrounds, most in need of mentoring as a means to offer additional support.
This free mentoring aims to support black youth in understanding resilience tools and addressing the social issues that impact their mental health as they journey from adolescence into adulthood.
Sometimes we all feel lonely, misunderstood or stereotyped and our free mentoring will offer compassion, empathy and a safe space to navigate the oftentimes harsh racist environments experienced daily.
Mentoring Tool Kit
Our mentoring is framed by our mentoring tool kit to support our mentors in delivering high-quality mentoring that supports young people in reflecting on their current situation, their strengths and the opportunities available to them.
