What people are saying about us Our testimonials are taken during real mentoring sessions and written by real mentees.
"I found the organisation to be professionals proficient they are very capable of engaging a large group of young people from two different estates with varying demographics and a history of anti-social behaviour, they are also capable of working under minimal supervision to dynamically structured sessions where young people could come along to express themselves creatively in a safe and welcoming space."

"I was present when The Mentoring Lab ran an employability programme last year at Ingram Court. The teams' ability to engage the hardest to reach residents was extraordinary. There were some real measurable outcomes that came out of the programme and its structure was both beneficial in terms of raising aspirations and accessing resources coupled with being flexible enough to cater for individual needs. I would strongly recommend.

"The Mentoring Lab has been responsible for the design and implementation of an extremely successful Summer Activities programme for Futureversity in Greenwich for the past two years. They have demonstrated great skill and determination to deliver a programme which has far exceeded the expectations of both commissioners and Futureversity."

"I would like to start off by saying, a big thank you for my son who had received so much information! It was such a blessing and appreciate your time and effort. We took away much more than expected which motivates me and my son to continue using other services you may have to offer and to also let others know of the great work you and your team are putting in to help young teenagers be inspired, learning new skills, also confidence building to go on being a better version of themselves. Thank you. "
