Future Leaders Programme - Peer Mentoring Information

“Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.” 

– Dan Pena.

The ThinkForward Future Leaders programme is working with young black men in Year 11 that have faced a range of challenges within mainstream school and are receiving professional coaching to help their journey into a positive post-16 destination such as sixth form, college, apprenticeships and employment. 

After having run a successful mentoring programme with a group of 30 amazing experienced black professionals who mentored the young men on the programme over a period of 4 months, we are now offering Peer Mentoring to the young men on our programme. We are looking for young people aged 17-21 that identify as African-Caribbean (including dual heritage) to become a peer mentor and use your skills to better your community.

Programme Outline: 

As a mentor, you will be provided with pre-designed session plans, which you will use to guide your mentees during the programme. Topics include:

  • Telling your unique story to develop confidence
  • Discussing future career paths and necessary steps
  • Exploring your purpose
  • Deeper discussion to build relationships
  • Developing necessary skills for the future.

Benefits to you: 

  • A sense of self-fulfilment and improvement of your leadership skills
  • Be a part of a young person’s professional development that is a part of your community
  • Demonstrate and document your passion for helping young people in your local community 
  • Increase your network by building relationships with the other mentors working with you
