The UK Youth Unemployment rate is currently 12.3% with that set to rise drastically due to the current COVID-19 Crisis. Aside from the crisis we have identified 3 other factors for this rise:
- Skills Mismatch
- Lack of entrepreneurship and life skills education
- Lack of access to capital.
Coupled with our I Am Change Programme, the Mentor Matcher programme aims to connect our Alumni with Mentors who can accelerate their journey into the workforce by helping them to negate these 3 factors.
We have diligently selected highly skilled and knowledgeable Mentors who have years of experience across a wide range of fields which can help their mentees achieve their short and long term goals in an efficient and effective manner. Our Mentors share our belief that some of the best talent can be found in our inner cities and are willing to give their time to help the next generation fulfil their potential.
