“I couldn’t have done it without your help, I would have been lost. Thank you for helping me to believe in myself and helping me to think I can achieve anything I put my mind to. You are one in a million and I am so glad I got to meet you!”

Academy Student

“My mentee had little to no ‘life skills’ upon starting the programme. He was lacking confidence and direction and had never stood up in class to read anything out. After three months of being mentored by myself, he has achieved a great deal and is now confident enough to visit my workplace, email me and now stand up in front of a room full of people and present to them!”

Mentor / Mercedes-Benz

“It has been truly transformational. We have students presenting here today that would not have even spoken out in a lesson last October. This programme really is going to change some of our young people’s lives.”

Interim Vice Principal

“Many of our students have low self-esteem and confidence as well as coming from socially deprived backgrounds and this programme has been brilliant for them. It was a pleasure to be a member of the audience and please pass on my thanks to all the mentors for their hard work.”
