On 27 October 2017, National Mentoring Day, we launched the #UnexpectedMentor campaign. The aim of the campaign was to recruit mentors who can help develop a young person’s personal and professional future. We were looking for the unexpected. Someone who knows life isn’t one size fits all, someone who knows there’s more to people than meets the eye, someone who’s got a little to give, and a lot to gain, from helping the next generation. 

We’re continuing our search as we look for someone like you. Are you an #UnexpectedMentor?

Watch below for an example of a mentoring relationship at work.

A small amount of time spent mentoring a young person can help them discover their hidden potential and change the way they see the world around them. And the benefits don’t stop with those being mentored. Not only can mentoring be extremely rewarding for the mentors involved, but it can also uncover new skills, a fresh perspective and a renewed purpose in what you do.

We are proud to be working in partnership with Mayor's Mentors and One Million Mentors in the West Midlands.
