Mosaic, an initiative of The Prince’s Trust
Founded in 2007 by HRH The Prince of Wales, Mosaic focuses on connecting young people from hard-to-reach disadvantaged communities to relatable role models, to help increase their confidence and improve their chances of fulfilling their potential.
In a context of promoting social integration and cohesion, Mosaic seeks to improve young people’s resilience and facilitate the creation of a new generation of role models.
MKIAC have been partners over 5years (see video link below) in delivering Secondary School programme through effective mentoring programmes can boost participants’ aspirations, confidence, self-belief and motivation. Crucially, mentoring programmes enhance participants ‘soft skills’- personality traits, social graces, communication, language, personal habits, friendliness, and optimistic outlook – which are increasingly important for success at school and in the current job market.
Mentors work with a small group of students aged 11 -18 years old to raise their aspirations and provide them with the life skills to achieve success, with an approximate commitment of 16 hours per academic year (2-3 sessions per term).
