Could you pledge to help finance
an hour of 1:2:1 mentoring
in Peterborough Schools to help us
change the lives of young people?
So far we have just dipped our toe into the vital area of mentoring with a pilot scheme working with two secondary schools based in different areas of Peterborough.
To date we have worked closely with welfare coordinators in these schools who have helped identify specific youngsters whose behaviour in school or whose issues at home are causing them not to engage effectively in the school setting.
In the last 2 years we have provided up to 4 mentors each week mentoring between 3-5 young people in these schools. Our mentoring programmes use structured resources to focus on issues such as: Building self-esteem, developing emotional literacy, anger awareness and improving social skills. We also work closely with students in gender specific group mentoring sessions to talk tough issues relating to self-image, self-confidence, working on empowerment and identifying positive role models.
You’ve been a great help whilst I was in school and I will forever cherish the help you gave me
Quite simply, we need your financial support to help kick-start our Peterborough Schools Mentoring Programme.
This is where young people spend most of their formative time and it’s often not an easy environment. We want to be the consistent positive voice at just the time they are trying to discover and establish their own identity. Help us to do this for them.
Focused, one–to–one support and nurture can make all the difference to a young person
We have a vision to develop an extensive mentor network that sees a minimum of 2 mentors placed in each of the 15 secondary schools in the City of Peterborough.
It’s Time for Your Support
We think about our mentoring programme in terms of face to face time with youngsters.
We know what it takes to recruit and train our team and as a charitable organisation we rely on your financial gifts to resource this programme. To make it easier we have broken our mentoring costs down into those bitesize hourly interactions with each pupil.
These are the hours that really matter.
This way, people are free to Kickstart our programme by sponsoring anything from just 1 hour of mentoring or, if they feel the desire, up to a whole block group of 12 hours which will ensure that one pupil is taken through the entire 12 week mentoring course.
In this way we can ensure your gift is making a real difference in a young person’s life.
