Launching Mentee Mentor in Response to Covid-19 and Economic Downturn

news other Nov 02, 2020

We are pleased to be launching Mentee Mentor, a charity mentoring scheme for disadvantaged primary school children. We provide our charity’s highest achieving mentees already established at university to mentor the younger scheme participants through digital sessions in after school clubs, offering them mentoring, role modelling and tutoring in Maths and English. Concurrently, this provides them with a source of income during their university studies, a way of utilising their talents and a sense of pride in their social impact.

The main aim of this scheme is to help close the primary schools educational attainment gap which has widened further for disadvantaged communities due to Covid-19. This scheme is part of our charity’s wider response to Covid-19 and economic downturn which disproportionately impacts disadvantaged and ethnic minority families.

The Mentee Mentor scheme is part of the Fardad Foundation, an independent UK registered charity set up in 2017 to support young people from disadvantaged and ethnic minority backgrounds. The first programme, Migrant Leaders, was launched in 2017 to provide bespoke support to talented young 1st and 2nd generation migrants through mentoring, workshops, quality work experiences and connections with top corporates. By broadening their horizons and capturing opportunities well beyond their aspirations, they would fulfil their true career potential, consequently maximising their contributions to the British economy, society and communities.
