Situation

The project is trying to solve the lack of support and understanding that young people face in their learning and work environments.

Solution

Our project will solve the problem through mentoring, training of professional staff and community members. Mentors will be trained in goal setting and mood management. Mentors will then be matched with mentees and be empowered and enabled to fulfil on academic and social goals. Piloting a teacher training course to four secondary schools in Enfield which involves ways to spot various moods that affects young people's learning as well as highlighting methods of mood management.
