Inspired Women Mentoring Programme
In 2015 Inspired Youth won £10,000 from the AVIVA Community Fund to launch the project across the region. The #WhoInspiredYou? campaign gained huge support as people got involved with who inspired them, and what makes an inspirational character. #WhoInspiredYou? quickly became the foundation for the aspirations programme.
The Inspired Women mentoring programme is an exciting opportunity for women from all walks of life to share their journeys, and in doing so become inspirational characters to the next generation.
Get Involved – Schools / Colleges / Youth Charities
The Inspired Women mentoring programme is aimed at creating opportunities for local business women to work with small groups of young women in two ways. The first is a mini conference, where various business women can join groups of young women to talk about topics affecting young women today. The aim of the conference is to discuss issues and key themes, and this work builds the foundation for the main programme.
Following the conference, a structured mentoring programme is put in place to take small groups of young women on a journey through a series of modules to build on self confidence and aspirations. Each of the modules is supported by local business women, who form part of the group, sharing their journeys, their challenges and successes.
Get Involved – Employers / Professional Women
Sharing personal journeys is a powerful way to inspire young people, and no more so when talking about the challenges and successes people have experienced along the way. As a mentor you will get a refreshing chance to support a structured programme that will make you feel valued, and a real sense of giving. You will get the chance to see the impact your contribution makes, as well as connect with many other likeminded business women.
The programme aims to be flexible for those involved, whilst ensuring the right balance of support for the young women participating. There is no expectation of previous experience, and you will be provided with all the training and support you need to take an active role. This programme is about giving you the opportunity to be that inspirational character to the next generation.
