Youth Connexions have recently secured funding from The Careers & Enterprise Company to set up an employer mentoring programme for young people in Hertfordshire.
The employer mentoring programme is designed to support students who are about to start their GCSEs, but are at risk of disengaging and underachieving in their studies.
Young people will be partnered with a local employer who will support and encourage them to raise aspirations, improve educational attainment and inspire them about the world of work.
The scheme aims to help at least 250 young people across the county over the next 3 years.
For more information on how to get involved in mentoring please contact Youth Connexions on 01438 843610 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
