Mentors, mentees and supporters from the West Midlands region gathered in Birmingham recently to celebrate Mosaic’s first mid-year-event as part of The Prince’s Trust. The “Mosaic Connect” event was a chance to reflect on a busy and successful six months of mentoring in the region.
Representatives from all of Mosaic’s mentoring programmes, in primary schools, secondary schools, including the Enterprise Challenge, and prisons had the opportunity to share their experiences while for Mosaic this was a chance to say a huge thank you to all mentors for their hard work and dedication. Mosaic’s work in the West Midlands region continues to go and in the 2016/17 academic year, more young people than ever are being given the help and inspiration they need to have high expectations for their future.
Keynote speaker Mr Mango of Mr Mango Delivery said: “Mentoring is the key to providing success to young people! As always this is a fabulous event where you meet interesting and successful people and an opportunity to learn more about taking part as a mentor.”
Peter White, Deputy Headteacher at Saltley Academy, said: “Mosaic opens doors, gives you opportunities that you never knew existed. I feel privileged to be able to see first-hand the power of mentors making a difference in young people’s lives and shaping their futures every day.”
Mosaic’s Regional Manager in the West Midlands Becky Mitchell said: “Events such as this are so important as they give us the chance to say thank you to our wonderful mentors for freely giving up their time in support of young people. Without their efforts, Mosaic simply wouldn’t exist. Here’s to the next decade of changing lives for the better!”
