Innovate Communities is partnering with LinkedIn to launch a new and unique online mentoring programme called INSPIRE.
INSPIRE aims to assist young people aged 18-25 years to develop their own potential, and to become thriving and engaged members of their own community. Its concept is simple, to match successful professionals with young people from their own community and to INSPIRE them to see opportunities in life that may not have been apparent to them previously.
The programme will match Mentors with a young person for a period of approximately 9 to 12 months. Initially, Mentor and Mentee will focus on getting to know each other and building trust. After this it is about trying to set some goals such as helping the young person build their self-esteem, motivating them to engage in education or employment, etc.
Mentoring is flexible and can take place during the week, evenings or weekends.
