Applications for our 2020 mentoring programme now open!!!
Our mentoring programme provides young people with the unique opportunity to speak directly with established professionals in an industry of their choice. Our young people have benefitted greatly from the strong bonds they have created with their mentors and we are constantly seeking new mentors and mentees to join our successful programme.
Mentoring is important because it provides professional socialisation and personal support as well as practical skills and knowledge to facilitate success. We find that mentoring is rewarding for both mentor and mentee during the Shadow To Shine experience and beyond.
We offer a variety of mentoring options including:
Regular monthly mentoring for 12 months (121)
CV and interview mentoring (group)
One off sessions (121 & group)
Currently our mentors span a wide range of industries including: fashion, music, art, law, recruitment, PR, media, publishing, beauty, production, property, finance, not for profit, sports, radio, film and more.
Where possible, we will always try and pair mentee and mentor up together by shared professional interest however this isn't always essential. We've found that many mentee-mentor relationships have flourished despite the mentor being from an industry different to the mentee's interests.

Become a mentor
Our mentees need mentors who they can trust to offer advice, introduce alternatives, challenge, motivate, inspire and encourage them to follow their dreams. You will be required to provide a supportive, non-judgmental relationship in which each mentee can explore and realise their vision of what they want to achieve in life.
