Thinking about mentoring young people?

Welcome to One Million Mentors

to expect

One thing I have learned in my career is the value of having a mentor –
it’s helped me take important decisions in work and in life.
These mentors will be people who are successful in their careers
and who can give a hand up for young people just starting out,
in work or those setting up on their own.

  Why is mentoring important?  

A young person's perspective

Help find a young person’s purpose in life

Become a trained mentor

One Million Mentors’ aim is to ensure that every young person in the country has access to a trained mentor as they transition into adulthood. We believe that facilitating and investing in mentors will help to address the skills gap agenda and improve social cohesion.

To become a One Million Mentor, you need to be 18 and over. You need to be either a professional/retired professional, be prepared to give one hour, per month for twelve months and complete our level one mandatory online training.

Becoming a mentor couldn’t be easier

Sign up and take the training

Create an account in under one minute, which will lead you to our bespoke mentor online curriculum. Take our level one short mandatory training course (between 1 to 2 hours). Level 2 and three are optional.

Complete your profile

You will need to complete your profile in order to tell us a bit about yourself, motivations for mentoring and who you would like to mentor. Once the training and profile are completed you will then be able to move to the next stage.

Explore local mentoring opportunities

One Million Mentors is now advertising mentoring opportunities in the West Midlands region.

Track progress and receive ongoing support

Once you have been matched with a mentee, you will have a dashboard to chart the relationship’s progress. We will guide you through the relationship and signpost you to further resources.
