Exciting partnership with Mayor’s Mentors
Over the past few years, the West Midlands has enjoyed considerable economic success. Driven by a dynamic and thriving business community, wealth and opportunity have been brought into the region making it a world class business hub.
However, not everyone has been able to benefit from this success. Mayor’s Mentors is a new initiative launched by the West Midlands Mayor, Andy Street, to help give these young people, who have perhaps not benefited as much from the growing Midlands economy, the life skills and advice they need to flourish and alter their lives for the better.
Mayor’s Mentors is a fantastic way for you to get involved in transforming the lives of our young people and boosting pride in our region. If you have been successful in your career and you want to help young people just starting out, retraining or moving into new work, you can make a difference by becoming a Mayor’s Mentor.
Mentors will typically meet with a young person, either face to face or virtually, one hour per month, for up to twelve months, to discuss the young person’s ambitions and career opportunities.
Mayor’s Mentors has partnered with One Million Mentors to scale up the offer of mentoring throughout the region. One Million Mentors provides online training and resources, as well as face to face workshops to help you prepare and enjoy your mentoring journey.
