On the 31st July 2018 Mosaic and The Prince’s Trust hosted its Mosaic Scotland Connect event.
Held at MacRoberts LLP in Glasgow the event promoted ‘Relatable Role Models’ and featured a special Q&A from keynote speaker Rupa Mooker, HR Director and Employment Solicitor at MacRoberts LLP and a Mosaic Mentor.
Students Yasreen, Sarfraz and Sair from Shawlands Academy, who had participated in the Mosaic Enterprise Challenge 2018 spoke eloquently about their experiences as mentees and the impact their mentor had on them.
The fantastic evening brought together the wider Mosaic network to promote the value and impact of mentoring and to celebrate and connect the different components that make the Mosaic Initiative and mentoring programmes at The Prince’s Trust such a success in Scotland.
Atta Yaqub, Programme Manager at The Prince’s Trust said of the night: “The Mosaic Connect event was a huge success, not only in terms of numbers attending, but also in the diverse range and types of individuals who are showing a keen interest in getting involved in The Prince’s Trust and Mosaic. A thank you to all who contributed.”
Scotland Director of The Prince’s Trust, Kate Still said: “It was an absolute fantastic event and it was inspirational to see The Prince’s Trust working with the Mosaic network to help reach more people who can benefit from the work we do.”
Special guest speaker at the event was Rupa Mooker, Director of HR at MacRoberts LLP and a Mosaic Mentor. Of the event she said: “It was fantastic to see so many individuals interested in supporting young people in their community come together at this Connect event. The Mosaic mentoring programmes help to ensure that the aspirations of the next generation are met and provides role models for those who would not have otherwise had such opportunities. As a Mosaic mentor myself, I would encourage everyone who is able to give a few hours of their time each month to sign up!”
