One Million Mentors in Cardiff
Due to the success of our pilot in Cardiff in 2017 here we are delighted that Spirit 2012 have announced that they will be awarding funding to enable us to expand to the Cardiff Capital Region in 2019. To find out more about our work in Cardiff, please see our latest project report here.
1MM will be looking to mobilise employers and youth partners in the region our key targets are:
2019 – 100 mentors in Cardiff
2020 – 200 mentors in Cardiff, Newport and Cardiff and the Vale
2021 – 250 mentors in 6 authorities across South Wales
Mentoring will enable you to help young people (aged 14 to 25 years old) receive guidance, support and access to new opportunities, to develop their life skills and reach their potential. If you have been successful in your career and you want to help young people just starting out, retraining or moving into the world of work, you can make a difference by becoming a mentor.
Mentors will typically meet with a young person face to face, for one hour per month and upto a year, to discuss the young person’s ambitions and career opportunities.
One Million Mentors provides online training and resources, as well as face to face workshops to help you prepare and enjoy your mentoring journey.
We host face to face workshops for our mentors, where you’ll get to practice some of the skills from the online training, hear first-hand from experienced mentors and network with other professionals. We request that all mentors start their online training before attending a workshop.
