We regularly interview prominent people associated with Mosaic to find out why they got involved with Mosaic and their thoughts on our work. You can read all interviews in the Mosaic Q and A archive.
Why do I support Mosaic?
I support Mosaic because I have no choice but to do so. We have great kids with great potential in our communities. It is incumbent on all of us to help them get the most out of their lives and to become inspirational figures (in any way) for all those around them.
What do I most like about Mosaic?
I most like the fact that people give up their valuable time to go into schools and prisons throughout the country to make a difference. People get involved because they want to. And our mentees can sense this genuineness.
What are your hopes for Mosaic moving forward?
Unfortunately, I have large ambitions for Mosaic. This puts a lot of pressure on the team! But I would love to see Mosaic embedded in the majority of schools in the UK, encouraging life skills and aspirational achievement in many young adults in all spheres of life.
I would also like to see Mosaic deliver its programmes around the world. I travel frequently and wherever I go I see disaffected but talented young adults and wish there was a Mosaic programme available to them.
Why should others join Mosaic?
The joy of seeing the excitement of achievement in young adults’ faces is second to none. I would encourage everybody to join to experience that thrill. It touches one deeply, in a way work and other endeavours in life often do not.
What is your favourite mantra?
