Mentor Me programme
Can you spare just 45 minutes to improve the odds for a young person?
TESP is looking for people across the whole electrotechnical industry to join The Youth Group’s ‘Mentor Me’ programme.
So far, The Youth Group has supported over 1.7 million young people into roles they are passionate about. TESP is now working with The Youth Group to build a network of mentors with electrotechnical experience to inspire and inform young people about electrical opportunities.
The minimum commitment is to support just one online mentoring session (45mins) with a young person. After this session you can continue to support them, or feel free to have a session with another mentee.
You can choose to speak to a variety of different job seekers and share your experiences and insights, or work with one individual and support them on their journey to develop and get a job.
Just a single 45 minute session can make all the difference. If you can do more, the Youth Group recommends a 1 hour sessions every three weeks / month for six months.
Resources to support you will be available from both TESP and the Youth Group if you want to draw on them – the key thing needed is your knowledge and passion for the industry.
Mentor a young person and plant a tree! For each mentoring session carried out via The Youth Group, a tree will be planted in one of the National Parks across the UK as part of the ‘Net Zero with Nature’ programme.
