Mosaic celebrated its success in Scotland at a recent Mosaic Connect event held at The Prince’s Trust offices in Glasgow. The event provided an excellent opportunity for volunteer mentors from Mosaic’s various programmes to meet and swap stories and for Mosaic to thank them for all their hard work over the past six months.
The keynote address at the event was given by Faisal Ali who shared his remarkable and inspiring life story with the audience.
Zainab Magzoub, a former Mosaic mentee and now a Prince’s Trust Young Ambassador said: “I find having a mentor a really positive aspect in my life, having that positive influence has provided a sounding board as well as moral support in terms of where I can go forward in my life. I now have a plan, an ambitions and can’t wait to get started and make those ambitions and dreams a reality.”
Mosaic’s regional manager in Scotland Atta Yaqub said: “Although Mosaic’s work in Scotland started only relatively recently, it’s clear that we’re already making a difference to the lives of young people. Our mentors are passionate and committed and I thank them sincerely for their efforts. As Mosaic enters its tenth anniversary year, and now it’s part of The Prince’s Trust, I am excited about growing our presence in Scotland still further.”
