Every Child Needs a Mentor
Posted by: Sue Atkins
Every Child Needs a Mentor’s mission is to enable every child to access high quality mentoring and equip young people with the necessary skills for life. Most mentoring is reactive, based on what we call the deficit model; where children have to be failing in order to access mentoring. At ECNM we deliver Mentoring on an asset based model where all children are eligible for Mentoring support as we believe that Mentoring should be available for all young people. Our bespoke Mentoring programmes enable young people to develop their talents, build life skills and thrive. Our award winning work has been proven to close the achievement gap in schools and increase parental engagement.
We do not stop at Mentoring in schools; our consultancy offers inspirational talks for young people and staff and training for staff, volunteers and parents. We also support looked after children and those who are currently not attending school.
